    3. 3
      Mix gently but thoroughly.
    4. 4
      Form into small meatballs, no more than 1 1/2 inches in diameter; set aside (can cover and refrigerate while you are making the sauce).
    5. 5
      Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed stockpot.
    6. 6
      Add pork chops and sausages and brown on all sides.
    7. 7
      Transfer pork chops to a plate to make room for the onions.
    8. 8
      Toss the onions into the pot with the garlic, fennel seeds, and salt.
    9. 9
      Saute over medium heat stirring frequently and scraping up any bits left behind by the pork and sausages, until the onions are soft and golden.

      Cover the pot, bring to a boil; decrease the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.
    14. 14
      Gently drop in the meatballs, 1 at a time, shaking the pot a bit to encourage them to nestle in with the pork and sausage and to make room for the addition of more meatballs.
    15. 15
      After all the meatballs have been added, continue to simmer, covered, for 1 hour longer, or until the pork chops are very tender.
