Directions:
Brown hocks or ground pork in Dutch oven with a little olive oil, cover and let cook about an hour, remove and add onions, celery and garlic and cook until tender. Add hocks back to the pot, and then add sauces, water and seasonings, including the Bay leaves. Bring to a boil, and then turn to simmer. Leave lid on pot cracked a little to let steam off. Cook about 3 hours, taste to adjust seasonings. While sauce is cooking, make meatballs by mixing ingredients as listed above, roll into balls and add to simmering sauce. You can brown them first in oven, but I just drop them in the simmering sauce.

Personal Notes:
Kristi asked me to add this recipe as she remembers waking up Sunday mornings to the smell of this. We all make our sauces a little different. I only use Furmano's crushed tomatoes and the sauce is never bitter.
