Last week we had a large anniversary dinner to help celebrate the 5th anniversary of Youth Ministry training in Latin America. We were expecting about 100 people but did not have a very large budget. I contacted my friend Blanca and she helped us come up with a great, affordable menu. We had meatballs, tuna sandwiches, fruit skewers with watermelon and cantaloupe, and molletes. The meatballs were better cold! So this is the recipe she gave me. She is such a good cook she doesnt need a real recipe 🙂 I have tried the recipe twice and they are getting better. So here is what I have done so far:
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion (grated over the meat so the juices will be soaked by it)
green bell pepper (grated over the meat)
1 tsp chicken boullion
black pepper to taste
1/2 cup cooked rice (more or less depending on your taste)
Mix all of it, scoop little meatballs, roll them in flour and fry! If you make the meatballs small enough you will have over 50!
I put 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a green pepper in a blender and purred it. I thought this was easier than using a grater. I do think it needed more green peppers than the 1/2 I used.
You can either serve them with tomato sauce or with honey bbq sauce.
