Beef meatballs recipe
A delicious meal that the whole family will love. Little ones can help roll together the meatballs.
4 - 6
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 500g minced beef
- 50g chopped spinach
- 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
- 50g fresh breadcrumbs
- 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper (optional)
- Tomato sauce (find our recipe here) and pasta, to serve
Heat half of the olive oil in a large, deep-sided frying pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes until soft and golden. Transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool.
Add the beef, chopped spinach, herbs, breadcrumbs, beaten egg and seasoning to the bowl and stir well, to combine. Using your hands, roll the mixture into 24 even-sized balls.
Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan over a medium heat and cook the meatballs for about 8-10 minutes, turning every couple of minutes.
Serve with Tomato sauce (recipe here) and your favourite pasta.
