Great Mama’s Meatballs

2 lbs Ground Beef 80-85% lean

1 lb Ground Pork

2 Large Eggs

1 Cup Breadcrumbs

1/4 cup Fresh Italian Parsley chopped

2 Teaspoons salt

1 Teaspoon pepper

3 cloves finely chopped garlic

One medium grated onion

2 Tablespoons Olive oil for frying

I make a large pot of homemade tomato sauce and simmer these fried meatballs in the pot of sauce for 40 mins or longer.

In a large bowl combine meats and add 2 eggs beaten. Add salt & pepper, garlic, grated onion and parsley. Mix in 1 cup breadcrumbs till mixture is well combined. Form into round balls about 3-4″ around each.   In a non stick skillet on Medium/High heat add olive oil. Place 10 meatballs in skillet and brown on all sides. This should take about 20 mins. Transfer meatballs onto tray lined with paper towels and drain. Add the meatballs to simmering sauce and simmer low for 40 mins.
