Pork Meatball Recipe


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • ½ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Beat the egg in a large bowl and add milk, Worcestershire sauce, and breadcrumbs. Blend well.

Add ground pork, onion, salt, and spices, and incorporate into the breadcrumb and milk mixture. Avoid over-mixing the meatballs or they will be too tough when cooked. If the mixture seems too dry, add 1 or 2 tbsp milk or water; if it seems too moist, add 1 or 2 tbsp more breadcrumbs.

Using your hands or a meatball scoop, form the meatball mixture into 1-inch diameter balls.

Fry meatballs in ¼ inch of oil until brown and slightly crisp. Place cooked meatballs on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Add to cooked pasta or rice with your favorite sauce. Makes about 4-5 servings.

For a healthier meal, bake the pork meatballs in the oven at 400°F for 25 minutes or until they are no longer pink in the middle.
