Either roll meat into balls, season with salt and pepper, and sear in a pan with oil (do not over cook them, just sear them on all sides they will finish in the sauce) Or brown meat and set aside.

Once the sauce is finished cooking add in the meat (allow some time to finish the meatballs internal temperature if you went with meatballs)
