500 g Minced Pork (or a mix of pork/beef….or beef)

1 small onion, finely chopped

Splash of tomato ketchup

1 chicken stock cube chopped

Salt and pepper

Flour for dusting 

Sprinkle of paprika 

Sprinkle of cumin

Simple tomato sauce:

1/2 onion, finely chopped

1 carton Passata 

1/2 carton of water

1 teaspoon of oregano 

Handful of fresh basil, chopped

Olive oil 

Salt and pepper. 


For the sauce, sweat off the chopped onion in a glug of olive oil for a couple of minutes then add the passata, water, herbs, salt and pepper and simmer to reduce while you make the meatballs. 

Mix all the meatball ingredients together in a bowl then form spoonfuls of the mix into balls and put on a plate. You should get about 24. Roll all the meatballs in flour. 

Fry in a little oil on a low heat turning on all sides for about 10 minutes until browned. Sprinkle the paprika and cumin when the meatballs take on some colour. 

Pour over the tomato sauce and continue to poach the meatballs on a low heat for another 10 minutes. 

Serve with spaghetti.
