Veal Meatballs with Lemon, Pecorino Romano and Buttermilk in a Tomato and Beer Sauce

I love meatballs! They are truly one of life's best comfort foods. Unfortunately, these little balls of goodness are given a bad rap. In comparing veal to it's grown up counterpart, it is healthier for you and better for the environment. Win, win.

It has a wonderful delicate flavour that just pairs beautifully with lemon. My mini veal meatballs are tantalizing tender and juicy. You know how most meatballs are thick and sausage-y in texture? Yeah...not these. Moist and full of flavour, they cook up very quickly, right on the stovetop, so no baking required.

The best part about these? The sauce, super unexpected and super delicious. I served these up with some store bought gnocchi and frozen corn, but the possibilities are endless. In a sandwich, with mashed potatoes, pasta or even rice!Try them...they are delicious.
