Wild Boar Meatballs


This was inspired by my favorite Itialian cooking magazine, La Cucina Italian. I had some wild boar, but you could use ground beef, lamb, or whatever ground meat you prefer and it would still me amazing.

1 lb ground meat
1 cup pecorino cheese, grated
3 slices Proscuitto finely chopped
1/4 c parley, chopped
1 – 2 red bell peppers, 1/4 inch dice
1/4 c kalamata olives, sliced in half
1/2 TBSP butter
1/2 TBSP olive oil
1/4 c white wine

Combine meat, cheese, Proscuitto and parsley, add salt and pepper. Form into small meatballs.

Heat skillet over medium heat, add butter and olive oil. When shimmering add meatballs and cook about 3 min, turn, then add peppers, wine and olives. Cook a couple more minutes. If pan starts to dry add more wine.

Serves 4.
