Meatballs are kind of a personal thing as many people have their favorite recipes. Coming from a very large Italian family I've sampled a few. Here is mine, which seems to appeal to my family, many of my friends, and my two dogs. I used to bring mini-meatballs to dog shows and they were a favorite bait for several dog handlers. They pretty much guaranteed that your dog would stand in the perfect free stack.
3 lbs ground sirloin (grass fed or organic is best)
2 tbsp of chopped parsley
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1 cup Pecorino Romano cheese
1 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
3 eggs (organic)
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/3 cup water
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl:
Note about ingredients: You can substitute 1/2 lb of ground pork to the recipe. I can't usually find natural or organic pork so I go with the beef. Both ways are delicious.
