Makes 40 meatballs (20 g each) with 600 g ground meat!!
- Sauté the onions along with the garlic in a pan, until they soften. At the same time pulse the bread slices in a food processor.
- It's always better to saute the onion for any recipe with ground meat, because it makes it easier to digest. Keep that in mind for meatballs, smyrna meatballs (soutzoukakia), rolls, meatloaf etc
- Put the ground meat in a bowl. Add the egg, bread and parsley and combine. Add the salt, pepper, sautéed onion and garlic and mix a little more. Wipe the pan with some paper towels and set aside until needed.
- Use your hands to mold the mixture into meatballs. Put a generous amount of flour in a deep dish. Place the meatballs on top and shake the dish in circular motions to dredge the meatballs in the flour.
- Place the pan back on medium heat. Add enogh olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Sauté the meatballs until they brown on all sides.
- Now, for our little trick! Add the bouillon cube and wine. Allow the wine to evaporate and reduce to about half. In a half a cup of water, add the mustard and mix to dissolve. Add to pan.
- Lower heat and in about 3-5 minutes, your meal is ready to eat!
- Serve with rice!
