Ingredients

  • 1

    pound ground beef

  • 1/2

    pound ground veal

  • 1/2

    pound ground pork

  • 2

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    cup freshly grated Romano cheese

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons chopped Italian flat leaf parsley

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    cups stale Italian bread, crumbled

  • 1 1/2

    cups lukewarm water

  • 1

    cup olive oil

Directions

1.Combine beef, veal, and pork in a large bowl. Add garlic, eggs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. 2.Blend bread crumbs into meat mixture. Slowly add the water 1/2 cup at a time. The mixture should be very moist but still hold its shape if rolled into meatballs. (I usually use about 1 1/4 cups of water). Shape into meatballs. 3.Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Fry meatballs in batches. When the meatball is very brown and slightly crisp remove from the heat and drain on a paper towel. (If your mixture is too wet, cover the meatballs while they are cooking so that they hold their shape better.)
