Tonight I am making Meat Balls, Couscous and Salad for Dinner. It is a very easy and fast meal if I have pre-made meatballs, which I usually do. Tonight however I will be making the meatballs from scratch, so it will probably take a bit longer…
- 400g Premium (low fat) Minced Ground Beef
- 1 x Brown Onion
- 1/2 Red or Green Capsicum (Bell Pepper)
- 2 x Cloves of Garlic, or 2 tsp Minced Garlic
- 2 x Sliced of Bread – Preservative Free
- 2 x Eggs
- 1 tsp Dried Parsley
- 1 Tbsp Steak Seasoning (I used Montreal Steak Spice)
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
Put all of the ingredients other than the ground mince into a food processor and blend until it is pretty smooth.
Mix the food processor mix into the ground mince beef. You’ll get a bit messy here, since you will need to use your hands for this part.
In the mean time you will want to be pre-heating your BBQ or grill to medium hot for cooking.
After you have mixed in the meat and your garlic / onion / capsicum mix you will want to start to form balls out of your meat mixture. The size of your meatballs will depend on your preference, but the bigger they are, the longer they take to cook on the BBQ or under the grill.
After you have made your balls of meat start to cook them until there is no pink in the middle, rotating them throughout the cooking process. I prefer to cook them on the BBQ, but they cook well under the grill as well.
Prepare your couscous as per usual and a simple side garden salad.
This is one of our favourite meals as a family. It’s easy for me to make and everyone seems to enjoy it.
