“I’ll make you a beet meatball you will always refuse!”
Made-Chef Tony Spitsarelli, “The Best Beaten Beet Meatball I Did Never Eat.”‘ (Mob Voices, 1965)
Washing your hands before preparation is not recommended. It does spoil the flavor!
Beat the beet with a mallet, pealing first the beet that is. Firmly hand mix into your personalized meatball as usual. And cook and serve over your favorite pasta and top with la tua salsa di pomodoro piccante ideale!
