The other day you may have heard my huge triumph - I won the first ever Tom Douglas Award when the James Beard award winning chef came into the studio band judged all of our show members' home cooked food. Joe made pork, Spike made rie, Luciana made tomato somethings, and Pedro made some disgusting vodka dip. But Mama made meatballs. WINNER.
Here's the recipe so you too can be a winner:
one package grass fed organic beef
one package organic ground turkey
half package shitaki mushrooms, chopped finely
five organic leeks, only the whites, chopped finely
three tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
one clove garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
squeeze fresh lemon juice
MUSH TOGETHER INTO BALLS. BAKE FOR 30 MINUTES AT 375. SERVE OVER PASTA.
PASTA WAS SERVED COLD WITH HEIRLOOM TOMATOES, GOAT CHEESE, SALT AND OLIVE OIL.
