Sometimes you want to make something different with ground beef. So I looked at my storage cupboard for ingredients and came up with these oriental style litte meatballs. Perfect meat dish with oriental meals, but these also make nice snacks. Ofcourse they can be served with a potato-oven dish as well.
For 18-20 meatballs you will need:
500 grams ground beef
6 heaped tablespoons dessicated coconut
almost 1 teaspoon (Celtic) seasalt
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
a little milk or a few tablespoons of beaten egg
1 dessertspoon peanutbutter (optional)
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
You will also need:
a wooden board, a frying pan with lid
They are made this way:
1. Peel the onion and cut very fine.
2. Mix all ingredients but the coconut oil well together. Shape them in little balls the size of a pingpong ball.
3. Melt the coconut oil in the frying pan, when quite warm add the balls, and fry them for a few minutes until they are browned. Lower the fire, poor a little water to the pan, cover the pan and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes until they are done. Turn the heat higher and remove the lid for the last few minutes so the balls get a bit crunchy.
