Mix up a batch of my Basic Meatballs, and then continue cooking here.
In order to ensure that the meatballs are fully cooked all the way through, the oil needs to be hot, but not too hot. I always use a thermometer to check how hot the oil is, and for this recipe, the oil should be at 350°F. If you don’t have a thermometer you can cut open the first few meatballs to make sure they are fully cooked and no longer pink inside. If the center is still pink, reduce heat a bit.
