Recipe Ingredients for Meatballs

1/2 pound ground veal
1/2 pound ground pork
1 pound ground beef
1 1/4 cups fresh white bread crumbs (about 5 slices, crusts removed)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 extra-large egg, beaten
1 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 tbsp Olive oil

Recipe Directions for Meatballs

  1. Place the ground meats, bread crumbs, parsley, Parmesan, salt, pepper, onion powder, egg, and 3/4 cup warm water in a bowl. Combine very lightly with a fork. Using your hands, lightly form the mixture into 2-inch meatballs. You will have 14 to 16 meatballs. (Or perhaps 24, which is what I ended up with. I?m sorry I cannot give you a more precise measure; I am sure your amount will fall somewhere in the middle.)

  2. Pour equal amounts of vegetable oil and olive oil into a large (12-inch) skillet to a depth of 1/4-inch. Heat the oil. Very carefully, in batches, place the meatballs in the oil and brown them well on all sides over medium-low heat, turning carefully with a spatula or a fork. This should take about 10 minutes for each batch. Don?t crowd the meatballs. Remove the meatballs to a plate covered with paper towels. Discard the oil but don?t clean the pan.
