Making pork and veal meatballsHomemade meatballs are a dinner staple amongst most of my Italian relatives. You don’t even want to try to serve us marinara pasta without them; forks will fly. Though not pork and veal meatballs, beef ones were one of the first things my grandmother ever taught me how to prepare and to this day my restaurant still uses the same recipe.

Though, I have always loved those beefy balls, this blog is all about trying new things and that even applies to cylinder hunks of meat.

Trial, error and lots of caloric intake led to recreating the classic beef into these tasty Pork and Veal Meatballs.
