1 Mix the meat, onion, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a bowl.
2 Shape into meatballs and lightly dust with flour.
3 Heat the frying pan at 2/3 of maximum heat and do the water drop test.
4 Add oil and brown the meatballs, then set aside (you may find it easier to do several batches).
5 Pour the chopped tomatoes, season, then add the meatballs back to the pan and simmer with the lid on for 30 minutes.
Tips: You can serve your meatballs with flageolet beans or tagliatelle pasta.
