Extra tender meat balls

La Mozzarella in Carrozza - Extra tender meat balls

Yields: 2 | Cooking Time: 30Min | Difficulty Level: Easy


The secret for extra tender meat balls is, first of all, the choice of the ground meat: I like to mix beef meat with pork meat, which has a bit of fat. I don't use the egg white because it would make meatballs to tough. Add just the Yolk and if you need more liquid add some milk. Enjoy!


- Cut bread into small pieces and plunge them into the milk.

- Meanwhile add to the ground meat all the other ingredients . Squeeze the milk from the bread and add it into the meat mixture. Mix until just combined.

- Cover the bowl with some film wrap and let it chill in the fridge for about 30 min.

- Shape mixture into small meatballs and stir fry in a large pan until slightly golden. Add the tomato sauce and two glass of boiling water. Simmer until the sauce will thicken.
