Portuguese-style meatballs

What you need
  • Mixed mince meat
  • 1 egg, flour, olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, tomatoes, onion, garlic
  • Flat-leaf parsley, tomato sauce / Southern tomato sauce
  • Breadcrumbs

In a bowl, mix the mince with the breadcrumbs and egg. Make small meatballs and roll them in the flour. Fry them in the olive oil with the finely chopped onion and garlic, add a little meat glaze (or a meat stock cube and a little water) and reduce. Add the tomato sauce and simmer for 5 minutes, before adding a diced tomato and garnishing with a few sprigs of flat-leaf parsley.
