- 500g (1 pound) each of ground pork and lean ground beef. Or just beef. I like mixing it up a bit because pork is cheaper. shopping list
- 1-2 onions, minced (really, you want this as tiny as possible – tossing it in a food processor would be the easiest way, if you’re lucky enough to have one) shopping list
- 2-3 eggs, depending on how large they are shopping list
- 1 tsp fennel seeds shopping list
- 2 tsp coriander seeds shopping list
- 1/4-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg shopping list
- 2 tsp salt shopping list
- margarine or butter for frying. Or just use Pam, whichever, it all works. shopping list
- Optional: a splash or three of Worchestershire sauce shopping list
How to make it
- Grind coriander and fennel.
- Put eggs, spices and minced onion in a bowl, mix it all together.
- Add meat, mix well so everything is nicely blended.
- Shape smallish meatballs and fry them until the pink is pink no more – smaller meatballs taste better than large ones, although it takes forever to make that many. I usually go for about a handful of meatball mix, which makes a medium sized ball.
- Serve with brown gravy (I cheat and use either powdered or canned meatball gravy from St. Hubert. If you happen to be in Quebec it should be easy to find), boiled potatoes and lingonberry jam for ultimate nommage :)
- These are perfect for making in huge batches to freeze for later. I just defrost some in the gravy for a quick dinner.
