Step 1: INGREDIENTS

Picture of INGREDIENTS

1 lb. ground sirloin
2 eggs

1/2 cup of whole milk
1/2 cup of locatelli cheese

3/4 cup of plain bread crumb

optional...(soak day old italian bread in milk instead of using breadcrumbs)

1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1 tablespoon of fresh basil or a few leaves if not dry
a pinch of salt and pepper

Step 2: MIXING THE INGREDIENTS

In a large stainless steel mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix by hand, by mixing it this way you do not displace the fat in the meat making for a tender meatball.

Step 3: FRYING THE MEAT

In a large skillet with olive oil, brown each side of the meatball, then reduce the heat to finish the meat.

I believe Locatelli is the family name of Pecorino Romano Cheese...there are many types of hard grating cheeses on the market... My tastes always migrates back to this cheese, they have been producing fine sheep's milk cheeses for over 500 years. Thats the history lesson for today..LOL and no I do not receive any endorsement money for using there products...
