500 gm minced beef (can substitute with pork, chicken or even mutton) 4 Tbsp breadcrumbs (some stale bread toasted in the oven and pounded finely) 2 pieces sundried tomatoes (cut into small strips) 2 roma tomatoes (chopped roughly) 3 Tbsp Heinz tomato sauce 3 cloves chopped garlic 1 big onion (chopped), 1 bayleaf salt and pepper
Mix the minced meat with breadcrumbs and 1 tsp cornflour, salt and pepper. Roll them into balls. Heat some olive oil in a pot and saute the garlic and onions. Add bayleaf, sundried tomatoes, roma tomatoes and tomato sauce, bring to simmer for 10 minutes. Put the meatballs one by one into the sauce. Add a little hot water if the sauce thickens too fast. Simmer for another 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. At the end, add 1 cup of white wine (optional) and a generous portion of grated cheddar cheese over the meatballs, then serve. (Photo above has no cheddar cheese on top but I love the taste and texture of the cheese in the sauce)
I served this meal over some mashed potatoes instead of pasta. Bon Appetite!
