Aggie's Heatwave Meatballs
« on: January 08, 2014, 11:23:03 am »
I retrieved this recipe after googling pork meatballs Thermomix. I've made some slight adjustments from the original recipe, but here is the link -

1/2 large onion, peeled and halved
50g breadcrumbs or almond meal
Fresh herbs (dill, basil, continental parsley dry herbs is OK too)
40g milk (dairy/almond/soy)
1/2 tspn of cumin
1 egg
1/4 tspn of ground cloves
500g mince (pork or chicken)
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Sauce Ingredients:
3 tbspn of butter (or Nuttalex)
360g milk (dairy/almond/soy)
1 tsp TM chicken stock concentrate
2 tbspn cornflour
1 tbspn Gravox Powder

1) Place onion almond meal and herbs into TM bowl and chop for 4-5 secs on speed 6.

2) Add milk, eggs, and all seasoning to the bowl.  Mix for 4 secs on speed 2.

3) Scrape down the sides of the bowl using the spatula.

4) Add the mince and mix for 10 secs on speed 3.

5) Lightly oil Varoma dish and tray (I prefer to use the spray oil). With wet hands, form meatballs and place in Varoma dish and tray. Rinse bowl and blades.

6) Place all sauce ingredients into TM bowl.

7) Place Varoma into position and cook for 25 mins at Varoma temperature on speed 4.

I found there wasn't enough room to add vegetables, so I steamed some sliced broccoli/carrot/paprika chillies/potato in the microwave :)
The sauce is delicious!!

Well interesting. I felt sorry for this poor recipe because no one reviews it.

Aggies Heatwave Meatballs.

Don't know,how Maggie came to name this dish . Must have been a hot day as there is no heat in these here meat balls.

I thought the recipe was odd with the cloves but gave it a go.

Turned out pretty bland but I think kids would love it.

The sauce was very nice and it is a useful little sauce indeed
