THE PERFECT MEATBALL - POLPETTA DI CARNE

MAMMA MIA!  This recipe is classic, moist and delicious.



By combining equal parts of beef and pork, these meatballs are moist and flavorful.

Ingredients

1/2 cup milk
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1/2 lb. pork
1/2 lb. beef
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup parmigiano-reggiano, grated
Salt and pepper
1 cup vegetable oil



Slightly beat the eggs with a fork.  Add milk, garlic and parsley. 
Then, in a separate bowl, mix the meat, breadcrumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. 
Add the milk/egg mixture and mix well with a fork. 
Form the meaty mixture into golf-ball sized balls. 
Brown the meatballs in a pan of vegetable oil.
Once browned, place the meatballs into heated, simple tomato sauce and simmer for one hour.
