Ingredients
  • 3/4 pound ground lamb
  • 3/4 pound ground beef or ground veal
  • 1 small yellow skinned onion, minced or grated with hand grater
  • A handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon (1 turn of the pan) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 lemon
Directions

Preheat a medium skillet over medium high heat.

Combine meats, onion, parsley, salt, and pepper. Add butter and oil to pan and begin rolling small, bite-size balls, adding balls to pan as you roll them. Cook balls 10 to 12 minutes, shaking pan occasionally to brown equally on all sides. Deglaze pan with wine and allow wine to reduce by half, 1 or 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon over the meatballs.

Serve in a bowl.
