Intro: MEATBALLS "ITALIAN STYLE"
Meatballs are the basis of any good italian tomato sauce or ragù...
These meatballs go perfectly with my next tomato sauce "instructable"
Step 1: INGREDIENTS
1 lb. ground sirloin
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.
