If you tell me you bake your meatballs instead of frying them, I'm afraid we can't be friends...
And if you buy your meatballs ready made, well, there's just no hope for you.
Here's Nana Min's meatball recipe:
- 2 lbs. 80/20 beef
- 1 lb. ground pork
- 1 lb ground veal
- I4 eggs (one per pound)
- 2 cups good Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- 2 cups grated parmiggiano/Romano blend
- 1.3 cup warm water.
- Mix the shit out of it all and fry over medium/high heat until golden brown, turing often so they don't stick.
- Throw a dozen in a pot of sauce and freeze the rest for later.
(If you can't find the ground veal, add 1/2 lb. each of beef and pork.. If you're jewish, well, there's always matzah...)
