My Meatballs Recipe
It is one of my favourite meals.
What I love about meatballs is you can eat them as a snack, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are great if you are trying to increase your protein intake.
You can make them using any meat you like but the danish way is to use a mixture of pork and veal.
This is my recipe:
500g minced meat
1 finely grated onion
6-10 tbsp of buckwheat flour or oats (i prefer oats, but both works)
1 stock beef or chicken cube
100-150ml cool downed boiled water (with a desolved stock cube in it)
salt and pepper to taste.
a bit of butter
(you can add herbs, garlic, paprika to them for extra flavour if you would like too)
Mix and stir the mince well in a bowl.
-Add the egg, onion and half the water to the mince and mix it well.
-sprinkle the buckwheat flour or oats to the mix.
-add the rest of the water and mix well.
The mixture should be very moist. (Add more water if needed)
-Chill the meat mixture for 15 minutes to 1 hour in the fridge. It will make the meat balls easier to form.
-Heat the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat.
-use a spoon to help shape the meatballs (if you use a small spoon you will get small meat balls)
form the meat balls using the spoon against your hand and place it on the frying pan, flatten the meat ball slightly using the back of the spoon.
-Fry them for about 10-15 minutes (this does vary depending on the meat you use) per side until they are well browned and no longer pink in the middle.
A little Tip: I fry them on each side and put them in the oven to cook through this way makes it easier when you cook a big batch.
If you give my recipe a go i hope you will enjoy them :)
