Cafe Sevilla’s Albondigas (Meatballs)

Cafe Sevilla’s Albondigas (Meatballs)


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups minced onion, from about 1 large onion
4 ounces roasted garlic, puréed (about 1/3 cup), see Note
About 1/2 cup (3/4 ounce) chopped fresh basil leaves
About 1/2 cup (3/4 ounce) chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon Spanish paprika
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2 eggs
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1 pound ground pork
1 pound ground beef
1 cup grated Manchego or Parmesan cheese
Chopped parsley, for serving

In a sauté pan heated over medium heat, combine the olive oil and onions, cooking the onions until they soften and become translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and place the onions in a large mixing bowl.

To the bowl, add the roasted garlic, basil, cilantro, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper, stirring to combine. Set the mixture aside until the onion has cooled to room temperature.

To the cooled onion mixture, stir in the eggs and bread crumbs, then the ground pork, beef and cheese, mixing with your hands until uniform and fully combined.

Divide the mixture into 36 meatballs, each about one-fourth cup. The meatballs may be covered and refrigerated at this point up to 3 days before cooking.

To cook the meatballs, heat the oven to 375 degrees. Spread the meatballs out onto foil- or parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them an inch or so apart for even cooking.

Cook the meatballs until firm and golden and a thermometer inserted reaches 165 degrees, 15 to 20 minutes. Rotate the baking sheets halfway through cooking for even heating and coloring. Serve garnished with parsley.

Serves 10-12

1. Use cupcake cases to cover drinks glasses in the summer and prevent flies from dropping in. I need to do this with my wine glass because you can be sure, if you are outside and you need to go do something when you come back there is a fly in your red wine. They love it.

2. Use bulldog clips to keep stacked bottles in place in the fridge

3. Another way to clean a chopping board is to cover liberally with
Kosher salt and leave overnight. Scrape off with a cloth in the
morning to find the salt has absorbed all moisture to leave your board clean and dry.

4. This has to be the simplest way to open those annoying blister packs!

5. Use a cut potato to easily remove a broken light bulb

6. Use chalk to remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub white
chalk on the affected area and wash as normal – the chalk will absorb
the grease and be washed away in the cycle.

1. To tell if eggs are fresh, immerse them in a bowl of water. Fresh eggs will lie on the bottom, while stale eggs will float to the surface.

2.. Sprinkle salt in the spaces between patio slabs and at the
bottom of walls to get rid of pesky weeds(but be careful
NOT to get salt near plants you want to keep as salt will kill them!)

3. To clean a wooden chopping board, sprinkle on a handful of
Kosher salt and rub with half a lemon. Rinse with clean water
and dry to ensure it is clean and germ-free.

4. Use ice-cubes to lift out indentations made by furniture on your carpets.

5. Prevent soil from escaping through the holes in the base of flowerpots by lining with large coffee filters

6. To stop the annoying sound of a dripping tap, tie a piece of string around the
faucet which is long enough to reach down to the sink. You probably should fix it though.
