Italian Meatballs

I used this recipe to make my Godfather Sauce, but it is a good universal meatball recipe.

1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground lamb
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs
1 cup Romano or Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup red wine
1 cup flour

~Combine beef and lamb in a large bowl. Add garlic, eggs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.

~Add bread crumbs and wine to meat mixture. Mix to just combined, careful not to over mix the meat. Roll into about 16 2 inch meatballs. Roll the meatballs in the flour.

~Heat oil in a large skillet. Fry meatballs until golden brown, turning once.

~Combine cooked meatball with marina sauce and simmer on low for 15 minutes until heated through.
