    About this recipe: These meatballs have exceptional flavour. They are made by combining beef, veal, pork, garlic, eggs, cheese and fresh breadcrumbs. Serve in a thick tomato-based pasta sauce, if desired.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 450g minced beef
    • 225g minced veal
    • 225g minced pork
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 2 eggs
    • 120g freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 90g stale ciabatta bread, crumbled
    • 350ml lukewarm water
    • 250ml olive oil

    1. Combine beef, veal and pork in a large bowl. Add garlic, eggs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
    2. Blend breadcrumbs into meat mixture. Slowly add the water 125ml at a time. The mixture should be very moist but still hold its shape if rolled into meatballs. Shape into meatballs.
    3. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan. Fry meatballs in batches. When the meatball is very brown and slightly crisp remove from the heat and drain on a kitchen towel. (If your mixture is too wet, cover the meatballs while they are cooking so that they hold their shape better.)
    4. Place cooked meatballs into a tomato-based pasta sauce and cook for 15 more minutes.
