Dankie vir jou resep Okkie


What You’ll Need:

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, chopped
4 cans whole tomatoes, coarsely chopped
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoons coarse salt, divided
1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 kg ground beef chuck
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 large eggs

What To Do:

To make the sauce, in a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes with liquid, the bay leaves, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the 1/4 cup oil. Mix well then form into 18 meatballs.

In a large skillet, heat the 1/4 cup oil over medium heat. Place half the meatballs in skillet and cook until browned on all sides, but not cooked through. Transfer meatballs to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain. Repeat with remaining meatballs.

Place meatballs in sauce and stir gently. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking for 2-1/2 to 3 hours, or until sauce is thickened, stirring frequently.
Makes 18 meatballs.
