I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

meatballs w/ an oxtail kicker!

… that’s right!! started w/searing a beauty piece of oxtail before doin’ ma regular meatball thang (this is shit i make up as i go folks, i swear)… was looking to give that extra depth of flavour. is perfect when ya think ’bout it… my meatballs are veal & pork, the beef completes the meat trifecta – genius! btw, deglazed w/white wine too for more oomph! and, we chefs love oomph! purposely wasn’t shy using a shite-load of homemade sauce filled to the le creuset brim today either! why? how do you spell leftovers? l-e-f-t-o-v… never mind, lol! sides of creminis and hot (i mean, HOT) ontario peppers are the perfect compliment. at this point no skimping… olives too y’all! decided on my famous meatball sang today, provolone, romano def don’t hurt my fave/best (ok, ONE of, lol) italian meals ever! finished w/an obligatory splash of masi of course, and … roberto’s yer zio!!
