Meatballs in onion sauce

Meatballs onion sauceThis recipe is a classic in the Spanish gastronomy, together with meatballs in tomato sauce (which will be published in the coming weeks). I always have some tupperware with these meatballs in the freezer, so they are ready when I’m in a hurry and I don’t have time to prepare food for the next day. And they are also a perfect idea if you need to carry the food to work, school… 

You can use chicken, pork or beef . What I really like is to make a mixture using 50% pork meat and 50% beef meat.

I like having these meatballs with french fries, rice or mushed potatos. And of course do not forget a piece of bread for dipping in the sauce!!!!!
