Ingredients portion 6
Onions 1 head
Minced meat 500 g
Loose apricots 50 g
Olive oil 50ml
Chicken egg 1 piece
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
Cooking instructions 35 minutes
1 Chop the onion and apricots very finely. You can use a food processor, but in this case, do not overdo the intensity – the result should be finely chopped, not mashed onions and apricots.
2 Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan over a low heat and gently simmer the onion and apricots in it, stirring all the time. Do this for about five to seven minutes. The onions must not burn.
3 Put the minced meat into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Lightly beat the egg, beat it into the mince with your hands, add the onion and apricots and mix again.
4 Wet your palms and form small meatballs – about 3-4 cm in diameter. Grease a baking dish, place the meatballs in it and place in a preheated 180 degree oven for about fifteen minutes. Garnish the meatballs with, for example, buckwheat or mashed potatoes mixed with spinach.
Recipe tip Beef, veal or lamb can be used as minced meat. Lamb is more delicate but some people think of lamb as an adult food, which is a misconception.
