Extra-virgin olive oil
225g Spanish onion, cut into 0.5cm cubes
3 garlic cloves, crushed and finely chopped
340g each ground beef, veal and pork
3 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
135g grated Parmesan
6 tbsp water
20g breadcrumbs
3 large eggs
480ml chicken stock
1) Coat a large frying pan with olive oil and place over a medium heat. Add the onions, season with salt, to taste, and saute until they are translucent and aromatic but have no colour, about 5 to 6 minutes.

2) Add the garlic and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.

3) In a large bowl, combine the meats, rosemary, Parmesan, water, breadcrumbs and eggs. Season generously with salt and add the cooked onions and garlic. Combine until well mixed.

4) Make a small ball of the meat mixture. Cook it and eat it; this is a tester meatball to check if the seasoning is correct (it may need more salt). Adjust the seasoning, if needed.

5) Roll the meat mixture into 2cm meatballs. Coat a large frying pan with olive oil and place over a high heat. Working in batches, cook the first batch of polpettini until they are brown on all sides.

6) Add 120ml of chicken stock and cook until the stock has reduced by half. Remove to serving platters. Repeat this process until all the polpettini are cooked. Serve immediately. Buonissimo!
