Stove Top

Ingredients

2 lb
ground chuck
1 lb
ground veal
1 c
chopped flat leaf parsley
1 Tbsp
salt and pepper
2 c
canola oil
1 1/2 c
romano cheese, grated
1 Tbsp
oregano, dried
4 clove
minced garlic
4 c
fresh bread crumbs/ coarsely chopped
1 1/2 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
You'll need a large mixing bowl and a large frying pan,preferably a non-stick pan and a good sized pot of your favorite marinara sauce. You'll also need a pair of tongs to work the meatballs with,a large bowl lined with paper towels to absorb the excess fat from the fried meatballs,you don't want your sauce to be greasy!
2
Add the meats to the bowl,then all of the spices,garlic,and the herbs and the cheese.Mix well. In a separate bowl mix the bread crumb with the milk,then add to the seasoned meat,incorporate everything well.Hint: If you own a counter top Kitchen-Aid mixer,use it! So much easier!
3
Now that you have the mixture ready,time to brown them in the heated oil,350 degrees.Roll the meatballs using a number two ice cream scoop or you hands that have been moistened with a little water. This prevents the meat from sticking to your hand and you get a smoother,more round meatball that way. Brown them on all sides,moving to a bowl lined with paper towels to absorb the excess fat.If you prefer to cook them all the way through then split bone in half after two to three minutes a side to be sure they are cooked through.I don't. I add them to my tomato sauce and let them finish in the sauce! Very hard to resist eating while your cooking them folks! Enjoy!
