(recipe, caleb bo baleb)

Ingredients

  1. 2 lb. ground beef
  2. ½ lb. ground pork
  3. 2 strips pancetta - about 2 oz
  4. 1 cup onion
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
  7. 1 tsp. salt
  8. 1 tsp. pepper

Steps

  1. Dice the onion and cook it until it is soft; let it cool
  2. Dice pancetta and cook it briefly then let it cool.
  3. In the stand mixer, toss the meats, onion and species together and mix on speed 2-4 until well mixed. Add the eggs and mix until eggs are absorbed.
  4. Make golfball-sized meatballs.
  5. Grease a half-sheet with olive oil and cook the meatballs at 425 degrees, turning once.
  6. Optionally, finish cooking meatballs in pasta sauce.
  7. Notes: 15 minutes total was too long to cook meatballs - they dried out.
  8. Salt, pepper, italian seasoning and onion are all estimates.
  9. Pancetta is optional - whatever you have on hand is fine.
