· CLASSIC ITALIAN PORK / BEEF MEATBALLS ·

This is a traditional recipe of the Italian Meatballs, with Marinara Sauce. Very simple and always delicious, ideal to accompany any pasta. 

PREP TIME: 1hr

SERVES: 9

INGREDIENTS:

· 1 lb. Ground Pork
· 1 lb. Ground Beef (85/15)
· 1 c. Breadcrumbs
· 1/2 large Onion, finely chopped
· 1 tbls. Fresh Basil, minced
· 1 tbls. Fresh Parsley, minced
· 2 tsp. Fresh Rosemary, minced
· 2 Eggs
· 1/4 c. Milk
· 1/2 c. Parmesan Cheese
· 1 tsp. Salt
· 1/2 tsp. Pepper
· 2 tbls. Olive Oil
· 3 24 oz. jars of your favorite Marinara Sauce (I use Bertolli Organic Tomato Basil)

PREPARATION:

Combine all ingredients using your hands. It's truly the best way to incorporate all the flavors.

Roll out the meatballs into golf ball-sized portions. It makes approx. 28. I freeze half if I am cooking just for my family. I count 3 meatballs as one serving. When I use only half of the meatballs, I use only 2 jars of sauce.

Pour your marinara sauce into a pot and start warming it over medium heat.

Get a heavy saute pan nice and hot over med-high heat. Add your olive oil and start searing your meatballs. Set them in, leave them alone! Don't touch! The goal is to get carmelization on the outside of the meatballs so they are flavorful and juicy. Also, do not over-crowd your pan. This will cause the meatballs to steam and become dry.

Sear on each side then take the meatballs directly from the saute pan to the marinara sauce. They meatballs do not need to be cooked through. We are only searing them then cooking the rest of the way in the marinara. This makes for a very moist meatball. 

A totally optional step is to pour the grease from your meatball pan into the sauce. If you are concerned about the fat, by all means, skip this part. I do it for the flavor. It's fantastic!

Put the lid on, slightly ajar and let them simmer for a good 30 minutes.

Boil your favorite pasta, I like angel hair, top with the meatballs and sauce, serve with Parmesan and fresh basil...need I tell you what to do next?
