Total time: 
Serves: 30
  • 17.5 ounces ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • some fresh thyme
  • salt
  • nutmeg
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp of breadcrumbs
  • 1 garlic clove, entire
  • ½ cup white wine
  • extra virgin olive oil
  1. In a capacious bowl, put the ground beef, egg, grated nutmeg, thyme, cheese, lemon zest and salt. Mix it while adding bread crumbs until it reaches a consistency with which you can form balls.
  2. Make the meatballs big as a walnut and set aside.
  3. Put a thread of oil on a flat non adherent pan, add the garlic clove you have lightly smashed and add the meatballs. Add some more thyme leaves.
  4. Gently turn the patties to let them color on all sides. When they're pretty roasted, add the lemon juice together with the white wine and let it evaporate. Turn off the gas when there's still some sauce.
  5. Eliminate the garlic and serve immediately.
  6. Buon appetito!
