    I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and this is the AUTHENTIC Meatball Sub that you would get in South Philly. See my Marinara Sauce of Alan Leonetti (2 Servings) (((The Best))) for the marinara sauce. If you have any questions, e-mail me:

      Bravo! I'm making these today for the second time in two weeks. Great base meatball that can be easily altered to compliment any sauce.

      Wow, absolutely delicious! Every other recipe I have tried in the past has made my meatballs dry and dull. However, this recipe was made the meatballs have a crispy tecture on the outside and when you bit into them the inside was bursting wit flavors and moister than I have ever imagined!! Thank you so much for this recipe everyone at my party was complimenting the meatballs' moisture :)

      This going to be a 2 in 1 review, as I made these using your Marinara Sauces as you recommended. The meatballs: I didn't have any veal,so I just used equal parts of pork and beef. I doubled the recipe, so I could have leftovers to freeze and use at another time. These meatballs were very easy to make and were probably the moistest meatballs I've ever made. Others I've made usually turn out a bit dry. Delicious. I'll definatly make these again. Hopefully, I'll find some veal in the mean time. For the Sauce.... Or should I go over to that recipe and give a review separately on that one? Hmmmm(?)....I'll meet you over there.
