  • Prepare sauce. Break four slices of bread into pieces and lightly toast. Drain the red peppers and pat them dry. Add to the blender: toasted bread, red peppers, vinegar, almonds, garlic, tomatoes, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and extra virgin olive oil. Blend until smooth; reserve.
  • Prepare meatballs. Remove and discard the crust from the remaining 6 slices of bread. Add milk and bread to a large bowl; let it soak. Remove parsley and oregano leaves from stems; chop leaves. Beat the egg lightly. Add to a large bowl with bread: oregano, parsley, beaten egg, pork, onion, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper until just blended. Form or scoop the pork mixture into 2-inch balls.
  • Heat a large sauté pan on medium-high for 2–3 minutes. Pour in olive oil, then add meatballs. Cook 4-5 minutes on each side until browned. Drain the fat from the pan. Pour the Romesco sauce into the pan with the meatballs and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook 10–12 minutes until sauce has thickened and meatballs are 160°F. Serve.
