Meatball Recipe (New and Improved!)



Yesterday, balik frm uni n collect Awisy, saya terus gigih ke dapur untuk masak ini, heheh.. I bought fresh oregano and rosemary frm Cold Storage last week (kennot resist, saya mmg ada sedikit kelemahan dgn fresh veges and herbs2 nieh). Since then I've been planning to cook pasta w tomato sauce and instead of the usual way, this time w meatball~

Anyway this recipe I noted while watching Chef At Home at AFC, make a few modifications here and there but it turns out very tasty indeed! Yay!! Much2 better than my last ones (u can search my prev recipe using the new search box widget ;P)..

So here goes the recipe:

Ingredients

Minced meat (I used a packet of Ramly's minced meat)
2-3 white bread (I used gardenia)
1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh milk
1 onion, grated using cheese grater, kalau xde just chopped/cubed
1-2 garlics, finely chopped
1 egg yolk (to bind the ingredients together-gether)
1/2 cup of grated parmesan (optional, I LOVE parmesan!)
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil


Preparation

1. Let the minced meat defrost thoroughly first
2. Cubed the bread, then soaked with fresh milk.. dont put too much milk and make it too watery, just enough to soften and let the break absorb all the milk (this is the secret ur meatball is moist and soft, but if u put too much milk, it'll become too soft!)
3. In 1 container, mix together meat, grated onion, garlic, parmesan, and egg yolk
4. Add the bread to the mixture
5. Season with salt and pepper
7. Divide the mixture into several meatballs, I like big ones so I use a palmfull for each.. u can also make smaller ones.. depends.. I think last night i make around 8-10, pelbagai size.. hahaa
6. Heat ur pan on stove, when its hot enough pour olive oil just enough to cover the pan..
7. Place the meatball one by one, dont put too many.. Leave for a while until its really brown (dark brown pun xpe, meaning its caramelized, lagi sedapp), then flip over.. I let it seared for quite long as mine ones were big.. about 4-5 mins each side.. Make sure ur fire is medium-small
8. After u have browned both sides, drain all the excess fat/oil, then pour in ur tomato pasta sauce (u can search for my recipe using the search box - hehe), let it simmer for a while then serve hot with pasta~


Voila! Easy and yummmy :D


Here are my 2 beloved enjoying the dish ;)









Enjoy!
