Special meatballs

Today I experimented a bit with a recipe I have seen “floating around” the net. Mozzarella stuffed meatballs. My take was like this.

  • 250 g minced pork
  • 50 g parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • “pizza seasoning” (oregano and other herbs)
  • Mini-mozzarella

I mixed pork, parmesan, egg and seasoning. Then I made meatballs that I fried in al little butter.

At the sam time I made a really “strong” red wine sauce of

  • 2,5 dl red wine
  • 25 g chopped onion
  • some stock
  • salt and pepper
  • 75 g butter

I fried the onion in  a little butter and added the stock and wine. I reduced down to maybe 1/3.

Then I added butter while the wine was cooling down of the heat.

Finally I poured the sauce on the meatballs.

    I made a version of these a couple of weeks ago, and brought them to a picnic the next day. They were just as delicious cold the next day as they were hot straight out of the pan. The only difference to this recipe was that I used a blend of ground pork and ground beef, and instead of dried spices, I used my homemade pesto. I like the idea of wine sauce, though. I will try that next time I make these.

      Yea, I can imagine they are as nice cold as warm. I’ll have to try that for snacks sometime.
