Ingredients

  • 1

    lb ground pork

  • 1

    lb ground beef

  • 1

    cup fresh breadcrumbs

  • 1/2

    cup finely grated pecorino

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons course salt

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 1

    clove garlic minced

  • 1/4

    cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 2

    Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1-2

    small onion, finely chopped

  • Pinch red-pepper flakes

  • 1

    can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes, pureed

  • 4

Directions

1. Using your hands, gently mix together pork, beef, bread crumbs, pecorino, salt, eggs, garlic, and parsley in a large bowl. Form mixture into 2-inch balls. 2. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs; cook, turning, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to plate. 3. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion and pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and basil; simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce is slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Return meatballs and any juices to pan. Simmer, turning meatballs once, until cooked through, about 20 minutes. 4. Heat broiler. Arrange mozzarella on top of meatballs. Broil until melted, 2-3 minutes; serve.
