What’s the key to making great meatballs?
An excellent pasta meatballs sauce recipe is made up of around half meat and half breadcrumbs. The genuine key is to add lightness to the mixture by soaking day-old bread in milk or water. When you cook beef, pork, or veal for an extended period, it becomes tough. Meatballs, on the other hand, never have tough bread. Your meatballs will be perfectly tender if you use a day-old bread.
Instead of egg, what can you use to bind meatballs?
Eggs can be replaced in the meatballs recipe in a variety of ways.
For each egg, you can replace
- Two tablespoons buttermilk
