How to Make Marco Canora’S Meatballs, According to His New Cookbook -- Grub Street
  • Salt to Taste
  • There’s no getting around the fact that this recipe is a pain in the neck. You
  • have to start a day ahead, keep your meat chilled, and really can’t take
  • shortcuts. No doubt you’re thinking that a recipe for something as homey as
  • meatballs shouldn’t be picky and complicated. In theory I agree, but I have to
  • tell you, these meatballs are worth it.
  • 1 pound fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 pound ground veal (have the butcher triple grind the veal
  • or pass it through a meat grinder), chilled
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano plus additional for serving
  • 1 tablespoon of kosher salt plus additional for seasoning the sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • About 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Rich Tomato Sauce (page 20)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
