Liver and mince meat meatballs

Meatballs are usually made only from minced meat. But what if you add liver to them? Liver will make the meatballs very soft and everyone likes that.

The meatballs I made were made from a combination of minced meat, liver and semolina. I did not add any bread or flour to them.

Good to know when making liver dumplings.

The meat mixture for meatballs is quite loose so two tablespoons will be necessary to put the mixture on the water.

Do not put the whole portion of meat mixture on the water at the same time. Divide it into two or three parts. The meatballs in water should swim freely.

The meatballs must not be cooked for too long, otherwise they will fall apart. After a few minutes of cooking, it is worth checking on one meatball whether it is ready or not.
