How to make some rebound meatballs, Mediterranean style!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Servings: 8

Ingredients:

Meatballs:

1 pound chicken breast, ground

½ pound pork, ground

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 egg

1 teaspoon lemon zest

¼ teaspoon cumin powder

Salt, pepper to taste

Sauce:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 shallot, chopped

½ cup chicken stock

6 basil leaves, shredded

1 bay leaf

Salt, pepper to taste

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

The how to on being an expert on the rebound balls

  1. To make the meatballs, combine all the ingredients in a bowl for one great orgy. Wet, or if you prefer, lube, up your hands and form small meatballs (of course some prefer big ones, yes, har har). Place them all on a baking sheet and set them aside.

  2. To make the sauce (no innuendo jokes here please), heat the olive oil in a skillet and stir in the garlic and shallot. Sauté that gracefully, and not like a maniac that things are flying at the wall for 2 minutes (I know by experience).

  3. Pour in the diced tomatoes, stock and tomato puree then add the bay leaf, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring the sauce to a boil then arrange all the meatballs into the sauce, trying not to over crowd them, because no one likes it when you get in the way of things.

  4. Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for 30 minutes. While waiting, go put a barbell on your back and squat for 30 minutes.

  5. Add more stock as it cooks if it runs out of liquid. Sprinkle with basil before removing from heat.

  6. Serve the meatballs warm (I had to include this for you people that like instructions to the end) or reheat them later if you didn't eat the whole thing..
