For the meatballs:
- 1 Pound Ground Meat
- Half a small pepper a third is also big enough Red Pepper
- 1 Small Onion
- 2 Teaspoons Soya Sauce
- 2 teaspoons or the substitute that i mentioned above Worcester Sauce
- 1/4 Cup Breadcrumbs
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
Honey and garlic sauce:
- 250 ml you can also use powder Beef Stock
- 2-4 Cloves - depends how much you like garlic! Crushed Garlic
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 1 Heavy tablespoon Cornflower
- 4-5 drops Optional Tabasco
- Per Taste Ground Black Pepper
- Finely chop the pepper.
- Grate the onion using a grater. (For those who don’t have patience - place the pepper and onion in a food processor until they become mush)
- Put the pepper and onion in a bowl with the egg, bread crumbs, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper.
- Add the ground beef.
- Mix with your hands well and good until everything becomes a unified mix.
- Wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 20-25 minutes. (Or more - up to two hours)
- 3-4 minutes before the end of the cooling, light the oven to 450 Fahrenheit and line a tray with baking paper.
- Remove the meat from the fridge, roll balls and arrange nicely on the baking paper.
- When the balls are ready - put them in the oven for 20 - 18 minutes and not one second more! Otherwise the balls will dry!
- (whilst the dish is in the oven, I recommended to prepare white rice).
- Remove the balls from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.
- In the meantime, take a large skillet and turn the flame on.
- When the pan is hot - Crush garlic into it and give it 10-15 seconds to get the heat and soften.
- Add the beef stock, honey, and cornstarch and for those who’d like that extra kick – now is the time for Tabasco!
- Cook for 2 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sauce thickens nicely.
- Put in the meatballs - Toss and stir until everything is covered with sauce.
- Transfer the recipe to a bowl.
- Plate up and enjoy!
- Meatballs baked in the oven with garlic and honey and without the smallest drop of oil. Delicious and rich!
- Serve with white rice.
