INGREDIENTS

  • 6 oz Green String Beans
  • 1 fruit (2-1/8" dia) Lemon
  • 1 large Young Green Onions
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 large Egg
  • 8 oz Ground Pork
  • 8 ounce Ground Beef (85% Lean / 15% Fat)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese (Grated)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.  Remove the ends from the greens beans and discard; set the green beans aside.  Zest the lemon; set zest aside. Juice the lemon into a small bowl, discarding seeds. Slice the green onions into ¼-inch diced pieces; set aside.  Finely chop the garlic clove and set aside.  Crack the egg into another small bowl and whisk with a fork; set aside.
  2. Heat ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.  When the oil is hot, add the green onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring, until softened.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool slightly.
  3. Pat dry the ground pork and the ground beef with paper towels. Place in the large bowl with the green onions and garlic; add the Parmesan cheese, egg, and ⅛ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper.  Mix until all ingredients are well combined
  4. Form the beef/ pork mixture into golf ball-size meatballs and place on a sheet pan lined with foil.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until browned and cooked through.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add the green beans and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, until crisp-tender.  Add the lemon juice, lemon zest and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper.  Toss to combine.
  6. Divide the green beans between two plates, place the meatballs next to the green beans and enjoy!
