Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

Italian meatballs braised in tomato sauce are a true delight. This is my recipe for no fuss, perfect Italian Meatballs.

Great comfort food for when you have a few mouths to feed – the secret is a blend of minced pork and beef bound with bread and milk.

Roast and then braise these meatballs in your favourite tomato sauce and serve with pasta.

Italian Meatballs
Serves 5

Ingredients:
400g Minced Beef (Preferably Course Ground)
400g Minced Pork (Preferably Belly and Course Ground)
2 Slices White Bread (Gluten Free if Required)
75ml Milk
Large Handful Chopped Parsley
75g Grated Parmesan
1 1/2tsp Dried Oregano
1tsp Sea Salt
2tsp Cracked Black Pepper

Method:

1) Preheat the oven to 200c. Remove the crusts from the bread and soak in the milk. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, including the bread and milk, and mix well with your hands to combine.

2) Roll the mixture into balls around the size of a plum – you should get around 15 meatballs.

3) Transfer the meatballs to a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until cooked through. When ready, remove and transfer to a large pan. Pour over your tomato sauce and braise for 5-10 minutes until the sauce has come to a simmer.

4) Serve the meatballs and sauce with pasta and top with a little grated parmesan and cracked black pepper.

Enjoy!
