Italian Meatballs Recipe

Hello everybody! Today I am sharing my Italian meatballs recipe. I like to mix beef and pork to make the perfect meatball. Keep reading for the written recipe or watch the video below where I show you step by step how I make delicious meatballs.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs beef (chuck roast), ground
  • 1.5 lbs. pork shoulder, ground
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • handful of parsley, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup pecorino cheese, grated
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Start by preparing the meat for the meatballs. You can either use beef or pork, or both, as I do in this recipe. You can buy the meat already ground or you can ground it up yourself, which is what I prefer, using a meat grinder.

Place the beef and pork into a big mixing bowl...

Limoncello Recipe

Hello everybody! Today I am sharing with you how I make limoncello. Watch the video below as I make my limoncello recipe or continue reading for the written recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 5 lemons, peel only

After 30 days, continue to the next step.

Add the water into a pot and bring to a boil...
