Italian Pork Meatballs recipe

Servings: 4
Total Time: 1 hour
Recipe by: Frankie


1/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 pound ground pork
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup freshly minced parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 TBSP olive oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup freshly minced parsley
2 TBSP freshly chopped basil leaves


1. Stir together the milk and breadcrumbs in a large mixing bowl and set aside for 15 minutes to allow the breadcrumbs to soak up the milk.

2. Add the pork, garlic, egg, Parmesan, parsley, salt, and crushed red pepper to the bowl and mix together using your hands until everything is thoroughly combined. Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and set aside.

3. Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sear the meatballs in the hot oil, in batches, until well browned all over, about 3 minutes per batch. Transfer the seared meatballs to a plate and set aside.

4. Discard all but 1 TBSP oil from the the dutch oven and reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic and cook while stirring until fragrant, about 3 seconds. Add the tomatoes, salt, and pepper and bring to a slight boil then reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in the parsley and basil.

5. Stir the seared meatballs into the sauce. Cover the dutch oven and simmer the meatballs until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
