Method

To Make Meatballs

To Serve

1

Place all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl with some cracked pepper. Using clean hands, mix until well combined. Roll into walnut-sized balls.

2

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat.

3

Add half the meatballs, cook for a couple of minutes then turn gently using tongs, being careful not to break them up. Cook for another 7-10 minutes, turning to brown all over until cooked through.

4

Transfer to a warmed plate, cover with foil and repeat with the remaining meatballs.
