Meatballs with tomato, grandmother’s recipe

I also remember the night we were talking on the phone and he told me that he always used a teaspoon of salt and a clove of garlic for every pound of pernil.
With this as a base, I started to look for every recipe there was for pernil, to compare different styles and formulas. Finally I decided to make it with what I understood to be the best formula (but beware, everyone can have their own style of how they like it).
Following my mom’s wise advice, the pernil turned out spectacular, it really did! My husband celebrated it very much and my friends have already asked me to make it again for an activity with friends.
The pernil is supposed to take about 35 minutes per pound. The most important thing is that you take the temperature in several places with a meat thermometer and it should be over 170 degrees F.
