Meatballs

MeatBalls, let’s face it, what’s not to love about these tasty BALLS!! This childhood fav is great served over veges or with rice is my pick!

INGREDIENTS

(this is what I used in the pic- adjust quantity to what you need)

  • 500g Lean Beef Mince
  • handful chopped fresh basil (you’ll need to leave some back for the sauce)
  • handful chopped fresh oregano
  • ½ to 1 whole punnet cherry tomato cut in half OPTIONAL
  • 1 small brown onion diced
  • drop of red wine OPTIONAL
  • 1 cup of water
  • olive oil
  • salt/pepper to season

LET’S COOK

  1. In a bowl mix the mince, herbs, some salt and pepper to your taste I put 1 tspn salt and ½ tspn pepper
  2. Once mixed wet your hands and form into balls, just a touch smaller than a golf ball.
  3. In a fry pan add in olive oil about a tbsp, over a medium to high heat begin to brown the meatballs, once they are browned remove to a plate
  4. In the same frying pan, in a little olive oil, over medium heat fry the onions a little till they become translucent, add a sprinkle of salt and add in the tomatoes, mix well
  5. After 2 mins add in water & wine, salt/pepper to season, and let it come to a boil.
  6. Once it is boiling lower the heat right down, return the meatballs to the pan and cook for 5 mins.
  7. Just before serving add in the last of the basil and #EAT!
