Nigel Slater’s Meatballs Recipes
23/12/2016 meatball recipe
Two of my dearest friends are getting married later this month, so of course I made a quilt. This recipe makes meatballs, filled with rice, Swiss cheese, and celery leaves from scratch. We were always on the hunt for the perfect meatball – one that was tender and tasty, moist and meaty. Combine 2 tablespoons each Thai red curry paste peanut butter with a can of coconut milk juice of a lime.
I use the meatballs from your carrot soup w spinach recipe alllllllll the time. Richards, the executive chef at St. Cecilia in Buckhead, gave us this recipe for meatballs made with ground pork, ground beef and mushrooms — porcinis if you can get them. And for a sauce option using vine-ripened plum tomatoes, I love this recipe for Balsamic Pesto Marinara Sauce.
Being italian, I do not use jar sauce so I made my own homemade spaghetti sauce and added them in the last hour it simmered. It’s hard to imagine anything more divine than biting into a juicy meatball and finding melted mozzarella inside. If you are craving protein, this recipe will deliver 34 grams of it while you indulge in the hot, meaty flavor.
Your recipe made them well-seasoned, crispy outside, totally meat-like (which I don’t need but it was almost weird rolling them. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to pulse until you have the texture of coarse breadcrumbs. Also took advice to double the recipe and freeze extra meatballs for another time!
It is often a sign that the mince was too coarse – but is better than the sort of meatball you could throw at a wall. We will send you an email containing the list of ingredients for this recipe and a link to access the method. When you start to mix it all together, mix from the outside of the bowl to the middle and fold it in. After the ingredients are mixed, start to roll the meatball in your hands, about 6 ounces per meatball.
