It been a while since I post something. Well it was due to me visit my parents in Israel and on the way I want with my two brothers, their children and friends to spend some very good time in the desert, celebrating the Mid Burn festival.
To relate the event to today post, here is our kitchen. As you can imagine, we didn’t cooked that much and we survived mainly on snacks. But.. we did serve the crowd a lot of coffee.
Anyway, I give you the recipe without too much talking but, to say it was invented yesterday and it was good. You may consider to thicken up the sauce in the end by mixing bit of roux in to it.
Meatballs stew with white vegetables (mainly).
1.2kg minced meat.
1 Celeriac head sliced to eight wedges.
½ white cubage roughly sliced.
1Lt beef stock.
2 sliced onions.
1 Chopped onion.
1 Cup chopped coriander.
2 Tablespoon paprika.
1 Tablespoon ‘Baharat’ (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baharat).
Salt & pepper.
Mix the minced meat with the coriander, the chopped onion and the spices. Let rest in the fridge for some time.
Make around twenty meat balls, slightly press them down. Lay baking paper on a baking tin and put the meatballs on top.
Bake in pre heated oven for 15 minutes on 200 degrees C. Just to make the firm.
Meanwhile, sauté the onion in heavy stewing pan. After seven minutes add the rest of the vegetables, and mix to cover them in the oil. Continuo to sauté’ for eight more minutes.
Add the stock and bring to boil. Lower the heat and keep it simmering.
Take out the meatballs from the oven (providing you wait the fifteen minutes). You can add the liquid from the meat to the simmering stock now, or keep it for the roux.
Put the meatballs in the stock and make sure they are all cover (more or less) in the liquid). It is okay to let the vegetables to be on the top. Add more stock if needed.
Lower the oven temperature to 180 C, cover the pan and bake for at least thirty minutes.
Take it out and beef up the stock using the roux (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roux).
That it. I hope you will enjoy it.
