Core Beef Meatballs - Steamed

Meatballs for use in spaghetti and meatballs, meatball soup etc.
This recipe steams the meatballs, making lovely and moist.
You can cook in oven instead.
If serving as a finger food, I suggest browning under griller or in fry pan


When mince is on special I'll often do a huge batch and freeze in zip lock bags for quick meals later.

Serves: 30 meatballs

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 TB dry french onion soup mix or dehydrated onion flakes
  • 2 tsp gried garlic powder
  • 1 TB dry parsley or basil 
Method:
The easiest may to do meatballs is to get your hand in there. Before starting, wash hands well and pour a basin of luke warm water.
Mix all together with your hands.
Dampen your palms and form into small 2 cm balls.
If the mixture sticks to your hand, dampen your palms, this will stop it sticking and give a smoother ball.
Place in single layer in steamer basket. Do not crowd as the fats drain better with a few mm between balls.
Steam for 10 minutes.

Not on Core? The total Points for this recipe is 15 pts or 1/2 pt a meatball
