I feel quite tired this week, so I am all for any dishes that does not require a ridiculous amount of time preparing and cleaning. This recipe is really easy to make but it tasted a little bland. I should have replaced the 300 ml of water with some vegetable/chicken stock to give this dish more flavor.
450g minced beef
small bunch of parsley, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
300g carrots, quartered, then cut into chunks
450g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 tbsp paprika
500g jar passata
1. Mix the beef with half the chopped parsley, and satl and pepper to taste, then shape into 10 balls. Heat the oil in a large non stick pan and brown the meatballs for 5 minutes.
2. Add the chopped onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, and 300ml water to the pan. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Stir in the paprika, passata and half the remaining parsley. Bring to the boil, cover and cook for a further 15 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are tender. Season to taste and sprinkle with the remaining parsley to serve.
