Danish meatballs

Mr Bball and recently completed an A-Z country challenge, cooking recipes from a range of countries including Zambia, Yemen, Brazil and Denmark. This Danish recipe was one of the most interesting. I enjoyed it but Mr Bball wasn’t a fan. It is a perfect winter dish – delicious moist meatballs with a curry gravy served with rice, mashed potato or crusty bread to soak up every last bit. Best consumed under a blanket on the couch watching a movie on a rainy day. The interesting thing about this recipe is that you boil the meatballs – this cooking approach kept them moist. Ingredients: Meatballs: 300g pork 250g beef ½ cup milk 1 large onion, finely diced 5 tablespoons flour ½ teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon salt 1 egg Curry sauce: 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 large onion finely diced 35g butter 3 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons curry powder 2.5 cups water from boiling the meatballs 3 tablespoons yoghurt 1 teaspoon salt Squeeze lemon

Greek open meatball sandwich

Beer brewing is a hobby of ours but to be honest, our beer brewing efforts are a little infrequent. Nevertheless we had my brother and sister-in-law over for a brew day and when thinking about what to serve for lunch, a Greek style open meatball sandwich instantly came to mind. What better to accompany our vigorous beer brewing efforts? This meatball recipe is moist and tasty and together with a yoghurt sauce, wholemeal roll and salad, not too bad for your waistline! I don’t fry my meatballs, I cook them on a non-stick pan with oil spray. Ingredients: 1 onion 3 cloves garlic (2 for the meatball and 1 for the sauce) 2 small chilies 5 tablespoons Greek yoghurt (2 for the meatball and 3 for the sauce) 500g mince beef 2 tablespoons chopped parsley 1 teaspoon salt Squeeze lemon 1 teaspoon chopped mint Wholemeal bread (or your choice of bread or roll) Lettuce Tomato Cucumber Chili sauce (optional). Method: Mince the onion in a food processor
