What else could be more satisfying than to recreate your favorite dish at home but better tasting than the original? You can say goodbye to long queues at Ikea whenever you are craving for their beefballs lol just make sure you get their packet sauces to go with it if you are the type that must have gravy and cranberry jam with their beefballs.
Here i am back with a new experimental recipe of my own which i told myself that i would do more this year (but failed to do so lol), hope this post would keep you guys drooling to the end!
I know the word "LOW-FAT. LOW CALORIE" is sure to capture anyone's attention especially in Malaysia because we are constantly tempted with all the rich and high calorie foods that our waistlines expands with it :P
- 15 minutes (for juicy & tender)
- 20 minutes (for crispy & chewy)
I've yet to experiment making a lowfat & healthy version of the gravy but if i do ever succeeded in making it i'll make sure to make a blogpost for it.
But for now i can't be bothered because i am happy enjoying these beefballs the way it is!
It's simple with only 2 main ingredients which is the minced beef itself and onions, while seasonings are the most important ingredients that adds flavor to the meat. Just a few kneading and rolling then your beef balls are ready to be cooked & eaten fresh or frozen for rainy days.
- Lowfat Australian Mince beef (less tougher compared to local beef) - 450g
- 1 large onion chopped & diced
- Garlic (optional)
- Inapaarman's Kitchen- Brai & Grill (availble @ Cold storage)
- Dried Chili flakes
- Dried Parsley
- Cayenne pepper
- Airfryer/ Oven
Another reason why i became independent early, so if my siblings are reading this i do hope you guys could at least help out in the kitchen- washing in particular after my mom cooks.
Finely chop your onions and garlic, set them aside while you season your minced beef. There isn't any exact measurements for seasonings just go with your gut but when it comes to Inapaarman's Kitchen- Brai & Grill make sure to go easy on it don't put so much as this already contains salt & sugar. Just about 4-5 small shakes for 400g of mince beef will do.
Or else this would make the beef balls too salty (eww), you can also use the same seasoning to rub on your baby potatoes before dumping them together in the airfryer.
Then mixed everything into a big bowl (onions, beef, spices & seasoning), toss and knead it till everything is evenly mixed before rolling them into 4-6 cm diameter, not too thick or it won't cook well inside.
