May 24, 19, 03:36 PM #24Here are some old threads that have all been borrowed from to go into things for the cook book document. Thought some of the BGP foodies might like to peruse. Now that it's getting hot out, the slow cooker thread is particularly nice for those of you who don't want to have to get your kitchen particularly warm all the time by firing up the stove and oven.

May 25, 19, 01:31 AM #25Gonna throw down on some meatballs this weekend, thought I would share my recipe.
First the gravy.
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 Pounds Pork Neck Bones or Country Style Ribs
2 Pounds Italian Sausage
1/2 Pound Ground Beef
1/2 Pound Ground Pork
1 Large Yellow Onion, Chopped
1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
2 Large Carrots, Peeled and Grated
1 1/2 Cup Good Red Wine - something you would drink
3 (28 Ounce) Cans Peeled Whole San Marzano Tomatoes Including Juice
6 (6 Ounce) Cans Tomato Paste Preferably Imported From Italy
8 Cups Water
2 Bay Leaves
1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
1 Cup Fresh Basil, Julienned
2 Tablespoon Fresh Rosemary, Chopped
1 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Line 2 large, rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil. Brush the foil with olive oil.
2. Arrange (in a single layer) pork neck bones or country-style ribs on one baking sheet and the Italian sausages on the second baking sheet. Brush the tops of all the meats lightly with olive oil.
3. Cook meats in the preheated oven, until deep golden brown on all sides, turning as needed to cook evenly. Allow approximately 1 hour for the pork necks and ribs and 40 minutes for the sausage. Set cooked meats aside.
4. Meanwhile, in a very large, heavy-bottomed stock pot, brown ground beef and pork, over medium heat, crumbling into small pieces. Remove ground meats to plate and set aside.
5. Drain all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pan. Add onions, minced garlic, and carrots and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes until they soften and begin to caramelize.
6. Add the wine to the pot and cook, scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Continue to cook until the wine is reduced by half.
7. Add whole tomatoes with their juices, tomato paste, water, bay leaves, oregano, fresh basil, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
8. Add the browned grounded meats, pork necks or country style ribs, and sausages back to the pot. Bring the gravy to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer.
9. Simmer, uncovered for about 3 1/2--4 1/2 hours. You should see tiny bit of bubbling on the surface of the gravy. It is important to maintain a gentle simmer throughout out cooking time.
10. Stir occasionally so the meats don't stick. If the gravy becomes too thick as it simmers, add water. (If it's simmering gently, you shouldn't need to add any extra water.)
11. While the gravy simmers, make the meatballs. After the gravy has cooked for 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 hours and is nice and thick, give it a very good stir, digging down to the bottom of the pot, then add the meatballs. Continue to simmer the gravy without stirring for another 30-40 minutes, or until the meatballs are hot and the flavors marry. Remove bay leaves, or leave them in and have a prize for whoever gets one. The bay leaf is considered lucky.
Now the meatballs
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 1/2 Cups Onions, Finely Chopped
6 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 Pinch Red Pepper Flakes
4 Slices White Sandwich Bread, Torn into Small Pieces
3/4 Cup Whole Milk
2 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef, 80/20
1/2 Pound Sweet Italian Sausage, Casing Removed
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated
2 Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten
1 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1. You want your rack in the upper portion. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet, over medium-high heat. Cook onions until golden and very soft, 10-15 minutes.
3. Add garlic, Italian seasoning, and pepper flakes and cook just enough to release the fragrants, about 1 minute. Set aside and cool.
4. In a large mixing bowl, add milk and bread and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Mash.
5. Add cooled onion mixture, ground beef, sausage, Parmesan, eggs, salt and pepper and knead until ingredients are well combined.
6. Form mixture into 2 to 2 1/2 inch meatballs (you'll end up with 16-20 meatballs depending on size), place on rimmed baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, or until well browned. Remove and let rest for 30 minutes or so.
7. Gently turn them into the gravy.
8. Serve as is with some good bread or over your favorite pasta.
