How do you make meatballs stick together?

What’s the white stuff in chorizo?

Do you fry chorizo?
Cured chorizo is ready to eat so doesn’t need cooking, though you can heat it up if you wish by pan- frying slices on medium heat, and on each side, until browned and crunchy. Cooked cured chorizo is delicious if you mix it into salads or sprinkle it on pasta. It’s a speedy way to incorporate extra flavour and texture.
How do you make meatballs so they don’t fall apart?

How do you make meatballs that won’t fall apart?
This is, hands down, one of the easiest ways I’ve discovered to prevent meatballs from falling apart when cooking. Don’t overcrowd your frying pan. Allow the meatballs space to move as they cook. Shake the meatballs in the pan as they cooktoo, don’t flip them.
Crackers. Crushed-up crackers make an excellent bread crumb substitute in baked dishes like meatballs or meatloaf. The crackers work just as well as the bread crumbs to hold the meat mixture together, and using varieties like salty saltines or buttery Ritz is a great way to add an extra burst of flavor to your dish.
Is it better to fry meatballs or cook in sauce?
Do You Put Raw Meatballs in Sauce to Cook? Although you can, I recommend browning the meatballs in a skillet with a little olive oil first. This creates a nice texture on the outside of the meatball, while allowing the middle to remain tender and juicy as it finishes cooking in the tomato sauce.
Can meatballs be a little pink in the middle?
As a general rule, meatballs that are pink on the inside are not safe to eat. Pink beef or pork usually means undercooked meat. In the case of recipes such as meatballs in sauce, pink ground meat can lead to food poisoning.
