In a bowl we put the eggs, the sherry wine, the milk, the breadcrumbs, the chopped parsley, the salt and the pepper and the very finely chopped garlic cloves. Stir until the ingredients are integrated. Add the minced meat and knead with the liquid mixture until it is homogeneous. We reserve in the fridge for 20 minutes.

We are taking portions of the meat and we give them a rounded shape, we pass them in flour and we reserve them. We put a frying pan on the fire with olive oil and brown them on all sides, without passing them too much. We reserve.

To make the sauce in a saucepan, add oil, heat it, add the minced garlic, the minced onion, the very small cut carrot and the finely chopped green pepper. Fry the vegetables for 15 minutes or until they are soft.

We add the diced tomatoes without skin or seeds, and let them cook for 10 minutes. When the time passes we add the wine, let it evaporate for five minutes and add the hot meat stock.

Let cook over low heat for about 20 minutes and add the peas and meat, simmering again for 15 more minutes. We serve very hot.
