Serves 14-18 meatballs | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground veal
1/2 lb. ground pork
2 Large Eggs
1 c. freshly grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
1 1/2 tblsp. chopped fresh parsley
1/2 to 1 small garlic clove, minced
Salt/Pepper to taste
2 c. plain bread crumbs
2 c. water
1 c. olive oil
1 clove garlic, lightly smashed


With your hands, combine the beef, veal, and pork in a large bowl. Add the eggs, cheese, parsley, minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste and blend the ingredients together, Add the bread crumbs and blend until the meat mixture is moist. Shape the meat mixture into 2 1/2 to 3-inch balls.



Heat the oil in a large skillet, Saute the whole garlic until lightly brown to flavor the oil, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the garlic with slotted spoon and discard. Add the meatballs and fry in batches, being carful not to crowd the pan. When the bottom half of the meatball is well browned and slightly crisp, about 5 to 6 minutes, turn it and cook the other side for 5 minutes more. Remove the meatballs from the heat and drain on paper towels.
