  • Gently mix the chorizo mixture with the veal and season well with salt and pepper. Roll the mixture into 1 1/2-inch meatballs and chill for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 450°. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the meatballs and cook over moderately high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer the meatballs to a platter, sprinkle with the remaining cilantro and serve.
