Ingredients: 500g of minced pork, one-and-a-half teaspoons of salt, 80g of wheat flour, one egg, 200g of finely chopped onion, 150ml milk, one quarter teaspoon of pepper, oil or butter (for frying).

Preparation: Mix the meat with the salt, and stir for 2-3 minutes; then add the additional ingredients and stir until the meat mixture is even. Let it rest for 30 minutes and then add a little more milk if the mixture is too firm. Shape the meatballs by hand and fry at high heat in a pan using the heated oil or butter for about 2 minutes on each side. Turn down the heat, and fry the meatballs for an additional 4 minutes on each side.
