In a small bowl, soak French bread in water 3 minutes and then squeeze dry.
In a large bowl, mix together pork, veal, 1 tablespoon parsley, 1 clove minced garlic, egg, soaked bread, salt, and pepper to blend. Shape meat mixture into 1-inch balls. Dust meatballs with flour. Set aside.
Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and saute until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer meatballs to plate.
Add onion to skillet; reduce heat to medium and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in paprika, chicken broth, and wine.
Return meatballs with any accumulated juices to skillet; bring to simmer. Cover and cook until meatballs are tender, about 25 minutes. Uncover and add 2 tablespoons parsley, remaining minced garlic, and saffron. Simmer until sauce thickens, turning meatballs occasionally, about 10 minutes. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
Can be made 1 day ahead. Cool slightly, then cover and refrigerate. Bring to simmer, thinning with broth if necessary.
Place meatballs with sauce on platter to serve. Top with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley.
Makes approximately 32 mini meatballs.
* To purchase Saffron for your cooking needs, click on the underlined. Pure saffron is made up of tiny, bright-red threads. The redder the saffron, the higher the quality. The tips of the threads should be a slightly lighter orange-red color. This will show that it is not cheap saffron that has been tinted red to look expensive.
Spanish saffron is divided into grades. Names to look for are coupe, superior, La Mancha, or Rio. Coupe is the top of the line and it has the least flavorless yellow stem and the highest amount of crocin, one of the key essential oils in saffron.
Beware of bunk saffron. Saffron will always be expensive. If you see a packet of a couple ounces of saffron for just a few dollars, just put it back. Real saffron is VERY expensive and you only need a tiny bit when cooking. Do not fall for cheap saffron, as you will always get what you pay for!
