Directions

  1. Place the chicken stock, onion, garlic, and parsley in a blender or food processor and puree.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pureed stock mix, meat, bread crumbs, egg, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, red pepper flakes, and salt.
  3. Combine with hands until mixture is uniform, do not overmix.
  4. Put a little olive oil on your hands and form mixture into balls a little larger than golf balls.
  5. Pour about 1/2 inch of extra virgin olive oil in straight sided, 10-inch-wide saute pan and heat over medium-high flame.
  6. Add the meatballs to the pan, working in batches if necessary, and brown meatballs, turning once.
  7. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  8. While meatballs are browning, heat the marinara sauce in a large pot.
  9. Transfer the meatballs to the pot with the marinara sauce and simmer for one hour.
  10. Serve alone or over your favorite pasta.
