This is one of my husband’s favorite recipes I have created. I typically use an all beef mixture. You can use the normal beef/pork/veal mixture or any combination. Just a warning – if you use the all beef mixture it will be heavy and dense! We like this version occasionally but others might not like how heavy and thick it is. This is a personal preference. Please choose your meat accordingly.
