Quick to make, these meatballs have a scented and marrow savour. Served with their sauce (more or less spicy according to taste) they will be the most beautiful effect in your plate…

Ingredients for 2 persons

For the meatballs:

  • 200 g of ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil to cook the meatballs

For the sauce:

  • 400 g of chopped tomatoes and their juice
  • 1 fresh onion
  • 1 fresh green bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder. If you want a less spicy dish, just put a pinch!
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil to cook the sauce


Step 1:

In a plate, mix ground beef with onion powder, dehydrated garlic, chopped parsley, soy sauce, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.

When the ingredients are well mixed, make a compact ball and let it rest in the refrigerator during the preparation of the sauce.

Step 2:

Prepare the onion: cut the ends, peel the onion, remove the seeds and wash with water. Slice and cut the onion into small pieces.

Prepare the bell pepper: cut in half, remove the peduncle, remove the white parts then wash with water to remove seeds. Slice and cut the bell pepper into small pieces.

Step 3:

In a saucepan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil and fry the bell pepper and onion pieces for 2 minutes over high heat. While cooking, add paprika and chili powder. Mix.

Step 4:

Pour the chopped tomatoes and their juice into the saucepan. Add a few pinches of salt. Mix. Put a lid on the pan and cook on low heat (power 3/10) for 10 minutes.

Step 5:

Prepare a soup plate with flour and an empty plate on which the shaped meatballs will be placed.

Cut the meat mixture into 8 equal portions. Roll a portion of meat preparation between the palms of your hands until you get a ball.

Roll the meatball into the flour: the meatball must be completely covered with flour.

Place this floured meatball on a plate. Repeat step 5 until you obtain 8 meatballs.

Step 6:

In a frying pan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil and grill the meatballs. Regularly return the meatballs until all the sides are well roasted.

Step 7:

Put the meatballs in the sauce pan. Mix.

Continue cooking the meatballs and their sauce for 10 minutes over low heat (3/10). Stir regularly.

Step 8:

After 10 minutes of cooking, your dish is ready to be eaten.

Serve hot with pasta, rice or semolina.
