  • SAUCE:
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup soft white bread crumbs
  • 2 TBSP. lemon juice
  • 2 TBSP. chopped parsely
  • 1 1/2 TBSP. very finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/3 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 TBSP. all-purpose flour
  • 2-3 TBSP. olive oil
  • Finely chopped parsely, for garnish
  • 1 TBSP. virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/3 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 tsp. freshly ground pepper



Step 1

In a large bowl, mix together the meat, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, lemon juice, parsley, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to mic very thoroughly. Form the mixture into walnut-sized balls, and roll lightly in the flour. Heat the oil in a skillet and fry the meatballs in batches until golden brown, adding extra oil if necessary. Drain the meatballs on paper towels.

To make the sauce, heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the onion for 4 minutes, stirring often. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the browned meatballs to the sauce and cook gently for an additional 5 minutes, or until the meatballs are well heated through.

Serve at once, sprinkled with freshly chopped parsley, if desired. Serve with rice or potatoes.
