Simple meatballs

When I was small, meatballs were big. Now that I am big, meatballs are small.

olive oil
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
500g minced pork
500g minced beef
1 egg
75g breadcrumbs (or matzo meal)
1/2 teaspoon salt
black pepper

  1. Finely chop and fry the onion in olive oil. When it is nearly done, add the finely chopped garlic and fry for another 30 seconds or so.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the fried onion and garlic with the minced pork and beef, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, salt and few twists of black pepper. Shape the mixture into walnut sized balls
  3. Heat plenty of olive oil (about 1cm deep) in a large frying pan, and fry the meatballs in batches over a low to meadium heat for about 5 minutes on each side, until done.
  4. Strain, then cook for a few more minutes in plenty of tomato sauce.
