  1. Saute the onion in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until it turns golden.
  2. In a large deep bowl, mix the minced meat, the sauted onion, the eggs, tomatoes and herbs with your hands and season.
  3. Wet your hands with cold water and knead the mix until it is light and fluffy. Then let it settle in the refrigerator for about an hour.
