    MEATBALLS

    SAUCE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine ground pork & ground beef in a bowl. Add ricotta cheese and egg. Mix thoroughly. Stir in flat leaf parsley, Parmigiano-Reggiano, nutmeg, and salt. Sprinkle in flour. Form meat mixture into 1" balls. (Sic. What is meant is to form the meatballs, then dust them in flour prior to frying.).
    2. 2
      Warm olive oil in sauté pan over medium-high heat. Fry meatballs until golden brown. Remove from pan & set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat more olive oil in sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sweat onions and garlic cloves in olive oil until translucent (4-5 minutes). Deglaze pan by adding red wine, then cook until liquid is reduced by half. Add tomatoes and chile flakes, then bring to a simmer. Add salt to taste. Add meatballs, then simmer for 30 minutes.

      I have made these many times since I first saw them on the Chew. They are very moist, tender and tasty. This recipe replaced my old favorite- one that I had used for over 30 years! I'm grateful that you posted the recipe- the Chew website is very slow and not that easy to navigate. Thanks again, Dayle
