1/4 cup Fresh Parsley finely chopped
2 cloves Fresh Garlic Finely chopped

1/2 cup Grated Parmesan or Percorino  (Real not pre grated stuff)
1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Raisins

Mix all ingredients except for meat together until incorporated. Add the ground meat and meat everything together. The consistency should be moist but not too much.

A trick it to roll a little marble sized piece and fry it to see if it needs any adjusting.   

When you are happy with how it's seasoned, roll the mixture into about 1.5 - 2" diameter balls.

Here is the choose your own adventure part:
Heat oil in a frying pan and fry meatballs until you get a nice brown on all sides.  
Don't overcrowd the pan.  

Transfer meatballs to your favorite sauce and let simmer on low until heated through 1 - 2hrs or longer depending on how much time you have.


You can bake them at 425 for about 20min 10 on each side. Carefully flipping with a tong so they don't lose their shape. Then put in sauce until heated through.
