Wet Your Hands With Cold Water And Gently Roll The Meat Mixture Into 1½-Inch Balls, Placing Them On The Tray Or Plate As You Go. You Should End Up With About 24 Meatballs. Wash Your Hands Thoroughly After Handling The Raw Meat.
  • 5. Place A Soup Pot, Dutch Oven, Or Large (10-To 12-Inch) Heavy Skillet Over Medium Heat. After About A Minute, Add 1 Tablespoon Of The Olive Oil And Swirl To Coat The Pot. Add Just Enough Meatballs To Fit Comfortably, And Cook Undisturbed For About 2 Minutes, Or Until The Surface Touching The Pot Is Deeply Browned.
  • 6. Turn The Meatballs Carefully With Tongs To Brown Them All Over. They Are Done When No Longer Pink In The Middle (You Can Peek With The Tip Of A Sharp Knife). Total Cooking Time Should Be 10 To 12 Minutes. If You Have More Raw Meatballs To Cook, Take The Cooked Ones Out Of The Pot, Set Them On A Clean Plate, And Cover Them Loosely With Foil. Brown The Remaining Ones, Adding More Olive Oil To The Pot For Each Batch.
  • 7. Once All The Meatballs Are Fully Cooked, Return Them To The Pot To Reheat Briefly. They’Re Now Ready To Be Eaten As Is, Or Simmered Gently In Your Favorite Tomato Sauce And Tossed With Pasta.
