I love meatballs but these were on another level!

For starters, I had never made meatballs with minced ham! This is why I love cooking new recipes, it allows you to move away from your comfort zone and try new things.

The oriental flavour intrigued me! I was about to make a traditional Italian dish oriental, and it worked! It was out of this world!

Delicious, enjoy!


Serves 4

375g cooked ham, finely chopped (in food processor)

375g minced beef

1/2 cup finely chopped shallots

1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

2 large eggs , lightly beaten

5 tablespoons milk

oil for frying (I use olive oil - you can also use vegetable oil)

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

6 tablespoons water

6 tablespoons vinegar

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

3 tablespoons soy sauce

In a large bowl combine the ham, beef, shallots, breadcrumbs, eggs and milk.

Shape the balls into 4cm balls.

Het the oil in a frying pan over moderate heat (approx 1 min)

Cook the meatballs on high heat for a pro 1 minute, turning them over at all times. this should take approx 5 mins.

Meanwhile, combine in a bowl, brown sugar, soy sauce, water and mustard.

Pour this mixture over the meatballs, reduce the heat and simmer for 5-7mins. Turn the balls once or twice in this time. If sauce thickens, add extra water. Serve with rice and green vegetables.
