A wonderful recipe from Spain. And a wonderful recipe from my childhood. I remember my grandma cooking it. Then it was my mom’s turn. And now it is my turn. I hope it will also be yours from now on. You will enjoy it a lot.
¼ lb ground beef
¼ lb ground pork
1 slice of bread
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 teaspoons chopped parsley
A pinch of salt
1-2 tablespoons milk
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Some extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons ground almonds
Meatballs in Almond Sauce! When you taste them, you will love them.
First we will prepare the meat for the meatballs. But before we will take the slice of bread and shred it. Then we will have to mix the ground beef and the ground pork with the egg, the bread, half of the garlic, one teaspoon of parsley, some salt, some milk, the black pepper and the cinnamon. And now we will shape our meatballs. To do that we will take a piece of the mixture, and with the help of some flour we will make the meatballs. We will heat some oil in a pan and fry the meatballs. It is important that the oil is hot and we have to make sure that the meatballs do not break. Stir the meatballs in the pan but do this gently. Once they are done, remove them from the pan and keep them on kitchen paper towel to get rid of the oil they might have.
Now we will work on our almond sauce. First, if there is too much oil in the pan, we will remove some. Then we will add some flour to the pan. We will stir the flour so that it cooks. Be careful. We do not want it to burn. Then we will have ready a mixture with the ground almonds, the other half of the garlic and one teaspoon of parsley. We will add that to the pan now. We will keep on stirring and we will be adding warm water little by little to get the sauce we want. When the sauce is almost ready, we will add the meatballs to the pan and will let them simmer for a while before serving.
And now, just enjoy your meatballs in almond sauce.
