Perfect Dinners



 Prep.Time: 20 mins
 Cook.Time: 60 mins
 Difficulty: Easy
 Serves: 4-6


 Non-Stick Frying Pan
 Sharp Knife
 Chopping Board
 Wooden Spoon


 500gm/1.1lb Beef Mince
 2 Red Onions
 2 Cloves Garlic
 1 Egg
 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
 ½ tsp Italian Seasoning
 ½ tsp Oregano
 Black Pepper


Chop onions finely and fry gently in one tablespoon of the olive oil until softened (if you do this with a lid on there is less chance of burning).
Finely chop the garlic and add to the onions.
Drain and allow to cool.
When cooled add to mince with herbs and pepper.
Beat egg and mix well into mince mixture with your hands.
Shape mixture into balls, roughly 1½" or 4cm diameter.
If eating without a sauce fry in remaining three tablespoons of olive oil until brown and drain well and serve with sides of your choice.
Alternatively cover with cling film and refrigerate after forming the balls and when ready to use, add to a sauce of your choice and cook through slowly to infuse the flavour into the meatballs.

 We stick the meatballs in a bolognese we are making so we get two meals.
 Also lovely in curries or anything with a sauce.
