With the right balance of sauce to meat to cheese and crisp grilled meatballs, this is a parm hero done right.
A mixture of organ meat and ground pork, wrapped in fat then roasted until just cooked through. These savory meatballs are delicious and relatively easy to make. As for the name, it comes from the way they resemble the wrapped look of old-time bundles of wood with the same name. Don't let the title throw you off; even offal beginners will delight in the fatty savory little packages.
This sandwich is all about contrasts. The lamb meatballs are well spiced and savory, while the pomegranate and yogurt sauce is tangy and creamy.
For this meatball version of pork schnitzel, a simple blend of thyme, lemon zest, and parsley is combined with ground pork; the mixture is then formed into balls, rolled in flour, egg, and panko and then deep-fried until crisp. The crunchy panko shell gives way to a juicy schnitzel interior—just like its cutlet counterpart. And also like its cutlet counterpart, these meatballs need no further embellishment other than a squeeze of lemon, but a bit of sauerkraut or a dip in grainy mustard work wonderfully well too.

Four meats, six pounds of tomatoes, and five hours of time well spent results in an incredibly rich and meaty sauce ready to top pasta, followed by a second course of excellent grilled and sauce-simmered meatballs, sausages, and braciole.
