Created by admin, Sunday, 06 June 2010

Description

This is one of my favorite meatball recipes and can be easily changed to beef, chicken or pork. I usually serve it over brown rice with steamed broccoli as a side dish.

Methods/steps

  1. Mix ground beef, beaten eggs, bread crumbs, garlic, sea salt and pepper together.

  3. Combine cornstarch, brown sugar, vinegar, juice and soya sauce in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat and stir constantly until thick.

This recipe is also excellent with beef. Cut the beef in small pieces and fry in olive oil until tender, about 1 hour. Add salt, pepper and garlic.
Keep adding a little water until cooked. Add hot sauce, chopped vegetables and pineapple fruit. Cook for 5 minutes.
