“Fry the meatballs in oil and butter--they're great just like that. Or if you are going to add them to a pot of sauce, leave them slightly undercooked so as to not overcook them in the sauce. If you're adding them to the Meat Gravy, put them in about 1 hour before serving.” - by Bon Appetito
Original recipe yields 30 meatballs
- Combine ground pork, Italian sausage, ground sirloin, and ground chuck in a large bowl. Mix them with your hands until thoroughly combined.
- Soak bread chunks in chicken broth in a bowl until completely soft. Combine garlic and parsley in a mini chopper or food processor and grind to a fine paste. Squeeze the excess broth out of the bread, reserving the broth in a bowl, and add the bread to the meats along with the garlic and parsley paste. Gently mix in beaten eggs and grated Pecorino Romano cheese with your hands until fully incorporated into the meat mixture. If the mixture seems dry, pour in some of the reserved chicken broth.
- Pinch off golf ball-sized pieces of the meat mixture and roll them into meatballs, taking care not to pack them too tightly, and set them on a baking tray. Depending on how big you make them, you should end up with about 30 meatballs.
- Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in two or three batches, brown the meatballs on all sides and drain on paper towels. If you're adding them to a pot of sauce, you may undercook them slightly, as they will finish cooking in the sauce.

"As or the flavor, absolutely fantastic! I was worried because I thought I should add some herbs, resisted doing it and glad I did. Everybody loved them! As for cooking, I browned them in butter wit..." See moreh olive oils and finished them in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes. Great leftovers on a sandwich with marinara sauce."
"The best meatballs ever...sorry Momma... he did learn from the best! I prefer the fried meatballs not in the sauce with plenty of sauce on top with my pasta. I have been wanting to review Bon Appetit ..." See morefor the longest time. I am his favorite fan..."
