I asked my kids what they wanted for Valentine’s Day supper…Guess who was making 1kg of meatballs on Valentine’s morning 🙋🏽♀️
They came out really great though so here’s my recipe for you to try. You can halve the ingredients for a single meal.
▫️ 1kg of beef mince
▫️ 1 small onion
▫️ 5 medium garlic cloves
▫️ A handful of coriander
▫️ 1 egg
▫️ 2 carrots
▫️ Robertson’s Rustic garlic and herb spice
▪️ peel the onion and garlic and chuck it into a food processor with the coriander. Stop when the onion is chopped up into tiny bits. Don’t let it turn into a paste.
▪️ next add the onion mix to a large bowl and crack in one egg.
▪️ peel and then finely grate the carrots (using the smallest holes on the grater) and add to the onion mix.
▪️ use half a sachet of the garlic and herb spice.
▪️ lastly add in the mince and mix well. You can season with some salt and pepper if you like.
▪️ roll out the balls (I got about 45 meatballs from this) and leave in the fridge for half an hour
▪️ heat the oven to 180degrees and bake the meatballs for 20-30 minutes turning half way through. Break one at the halfway point to gauge how much longer it needs to cook.
I don’t often sing my own praises but these were pretty damn good! So good in fact that I didn’t even get a chance to take a plated pic of the cooked meatballs 😂 Sorry!!
