1 pound chopped beef, preferably chuck (a fatty cut is better here)

2 eggs

3/4 cups plain bread crumbs—if you have stale bread you want to run through the food processor, so much the better

1/4 cup freshly grated parmigiano

1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 2 more tablespoons reserved or browning

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup currants

1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

1/2 cup Italian parley, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

28 ounces can chopped or whole (the better choice) tomatoes

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1/4 cup red wine

2 teaspoons sugar

1/4 cup basil leaves, packed
