INGREDIENTS

MEATBALLS

  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ¼ medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

SAUCE

  • ¾ medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes in sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. MAKE THE MEATBALLS: Beat the egg in a medium bowl. Stir in the milk, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, oregano and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in the beef until it’s as evenly blended as possible. Roll into 1-inch meatballs. Set aside.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the meatballs in the olive oil, being careful not to crowd the skillet. (You may need to cook in batches.) Cook until browned on all sides. Remove the meatballs from the pan and drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
  4. MAKE THE SAUCE: In the same skillet over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil just until the onion starts to soften and begins to turn translucent. Stir in the oregano and paprika, sautéing until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Stir in the tomatoes with sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, add the meatballs and simmer for 5 to 10 more minutes. Serve with bread, if desired.

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Fry the meatballs (in two batches if necessary) until brown on all sides. This will take about 5 minutes. Take the meatballs out of the pan and set aside.

Tomato sauce

Chop the onion very finely.

Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in the same skillet. Add the onion and cook it until translucent. Add the finely chopped garlic cloves and stir for another minute.

Add the tomatoes from the can, fennel seeds, oregano, bay leaves, cayenne pepper and chopped parsley. Add some salt and pepper as well. Stir well and bring to a boil. Simmer on medium low heat for 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Add the meatballs to the pan and heat them in the sauce for about 5 minutes or until cooked through.
