These meatballs are made with love out of lean ground beef, quality ground pork, breadcrumbs, Pecorino Romano cheese, garlic, Italian herbs, and then fried to perfection in olive oil.
In a large bowl combine cold lean ground beef, ground pork, panko breadcrumbs, Pecorino Romano cheese, Italian flat-leaf parsley, minced garlic, fresh chopped basil, beaten eggs, milk, pepper flakes, kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. Form meatballs to 1×1 or 2×2 inches. Place on a metal baking pan till needed.
Heat 2 large cast iron or metal skillets on medium heat before adding olive oil to the bottom, add enough to coat the bottom of the skillet or metal pan but not drench the meatballs in olive oil about 3 tablespoons or less in each.
Fry the meatballs on each side until browned. Remove from the skillets and place them on a wire rack to drain for a few moments.
Meanwhile, add your favorite homemade sauce to a large saucepan over low heat and then place the meatballs in the sauce to cook for 1 hour on the very low heat. Be sure to stir here and there.
Serve meatballs with Italian bread and cheese, or over your favorite al dente pasta if desired.
Top with Pecorino Romano cheese, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil.
