10:37 03 August 2111

Heres a brilliant way to make a tasty family meal out of the butchers freshly made mince.



Ingredients:


For the meatballs-


500g beef mince


50g Parmesan cheese, finely grated


2tsp paprika


1tsp cumin


1tsp ground coriander


1tbsp rosemary, finely chopped


Salt and pepper


1tbsp oil



For the sauce:


2tbsp il


2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped


1 chilli, finely chopped


1 onion, chopped


400g chopped tomatoes


2tbsp mixed herbs


1tsp Marmite


Salt and pepper



Mix together all the ingredients for the meatballs, apart from the oil, in a large mixing bowl. Make the mixture into balls using your hands. You may find it helps to dust your hands with a little flour to stop the mixture sticking. Place the meatballs on a tray or plate and leave in a fridge for two hours to firm them up before cooking.


Heat the tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and brown the meatballs for a few seconds on each side. Set the browned meatballs aside.


For the tomato sauce, heat the two tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan and add the garlic, chilli and onion. Fry for two minutes, or until very soft. Add the chopped tomatoes, mixed herbs, marmite and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a gentle simmer and add the meatballs. Simmer for 15 minutes to form a thick sauce and to cook the meatballs. Serve with spaghetti.
