Cuenca, from above

Cuenca is a beautiful city, 1 hour outside of Madrid, Spain. We stayed at the Posada de San Jose, the most incredible hotel in town!

Albondigas Caseras (Meatballs, home style)
To Note: I am not a fan of veal and have never had it in my kitchen but for the sake of the recipe, I'm putting it in. All that to say, what I don't know doesn't hurt me but next time round, I'll be rethinking ordering them. Damn though, and I do mean DAMN, they were good!

1/2 pound ground beef
1 pound ground veal
1/2 pound ground pork
3/4 cup break crumbs
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teapoon freshly ground pepper
Flour for dusting
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, coarsly chopped
1 small tomato, skinned and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
3/4 cup chicken broth
Freshly ground pepper

In a bowl combine the ground beef, veal and pork with the bread crumb, 4 cloves of the garlic, the eggs, nutmeg, salt and peppper. Form into cocktail-sized meatballs and dust with flower.

Heat oil in a large pan. Saute the meatballs until well browned on all sides. Add the onion, the remaining clove of garlic, wine, broth, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
