How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine bread pieces and whole milk in medium bowl,
  • pressing on bread to submerge; let stand until milk is
  • absorbed, about 10 minutes. Squeeze out most of the
  • milk from bread; discard milk. Place bread into large bowl.
  • Add ground beef, eggs, finely chopped onion, ½ cup chopped
  • Italian parsley, salt, pepper and dried summer savory and
  • mix well. Transfer meat mixture to food processor. Process until
  • well blended and mixture looks pasty. Form mixture into
  • 1 ¾-inch-diameter meatballs (about 30.) Divide meatballs
  • between two 13x9x2-inch glass baking dishes. Bake meatballs
  • 30 minutes. Set meatballs aside.
  • Dust meatballs with flour; shake off excess. Melt butter with oil
  • in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in
  • batches, add meatballs to skillet and sauté until brown on all
  • sides, about 3 minutes. Return all meatballs to skillet. Whisk
  • wine and tomato paste in small bowl to blend. Add wine mixture
  • to meatballs and bring to a boil. Continue boiling until wine
  • thickens slightly, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
  • Add broth, reduce heat to medium and simmer until flavors
  • Blend and gravy thickens, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer meatballs and gravy
  • to bowl. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley and serve.
  • (Ok, I serve with pasta...big surprise!)
