    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and meatballs to hot pan. Turn occasionally until well-browned, 4-6 minutes. Add ½ cup water, cover, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-5 minutes. A little water left in the pan is fine.
