What’s 4 Dinner -meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pounds ground veal
  • 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 2cloves garlic, minced
  • 2eggs
  • 1 cups freshly grated Romano cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups stale Italian bread, crumbled
  • 1.5 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 cups olive oil

Direction

  1. Combine beef, veal, and pork in a large bowl. Add garlic, eggs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.

2. Blend bread crumbs into meat mixture. Slowly add the water 1/2 cup at a time. The mixture should be very moist but still hold its shape if rolled into meatballs. (I usually use about 1 1/4 cups of water). Shape into meatballs.

3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Fry meatballs in batches. When the meatball is very brown and slightly crisp remove from the heat and drain on a paper towel. (If your mixture is too wet, cover the meatballs while they are cooking so that they hold their shape better.)
