Ingredients

  • 800ml beef stock
  • 250g beef mince
  • 250g pork mince
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Few sprigs fresh dill, to serve

Directions

  • Ensure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan of the HomeCooker; set the temperature to 250°C. Add the beef stock and bring to the boil
  • Meanwhile, mix the beef and pork mince with the nutmeg, allspice, 1 tablespoon flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl; stir in the 1 tablespoon milk and egg. Shape into 20 meatballs
  • Reduce the temperature to 110°C; carefully place the meatballs in the stock, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the meatballs with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Carefully pour the stock out of the pan; set aside
  • Melt the butter in the pan of the HomeCooker for 3 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and continue to cook for 1 minute, until a thick paste forms. Carefully remove the stirrer attachment and gradually whisk in the reserved hot stock
  • Replace the stirrer attachment and add the 100ml milk and fresh dill. Set the timer for 2 minutes so the sauce becomes smooth and thick; season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Gently place the cooked meatballs in the sauce and warm through for 5 minutes before serving
  • Tip: Serve over fresh pasta or hot rice. For a richer version, use single or double cream instead of milk
