“This recipe is from my friend May and it is really super . The 3 hour simmer infuses the meat balls with the tomatoe spice etc flavor. Then leaving them sit in the fridge gets rid of any grease that may have cooked out of the meat. The great thing is you make them in advance and can freeze them If you wish make them larger and serve as your meat for dinner”
