Full Answer

All ground meats, including beef, chicken, pork or turkey meatballs, need to be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165 F for food safety. When adding meatballs to a prepared sauce, precooking and draining the meatballs removes a significant amount of fat that can make the sauce greasy. Cooked meatballs can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. They can also be frozen for up to four months when stored in an air-tight, freezer-safe container.
