These meatballs are made with bacon and minced beef and simmered in a whiskey bbq sauce.  Perfect to serve as an appetizer, in a sandwich or a  family dinner. Serve on a pile of spaghetti, with chips or mash & veggies.

 

Now before I go on, I really must say a big hello to all new followers. It’s lovely to see you all 🙂

 

Ingredients

 

6 rashers of bacon

1/2 an onion

1 lb minced beef

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

1 lrg egg

1 tsp chilli powder

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 1/2 cups Bbq sauce

1 cup water

3 Tbsp whiskey

 

Method

 

Place the uncooked bacon into a food processor and process for about 1 minute or until bacon is finely ground up. Add in the onion and process until onion is finely chopped and mixed in.

Spoon bacon and onion mixture into large bowl. Add minced beef, breadcrumbs, parsley, egg, chilli powder, and salt. Stir to combine.

Scoop out the meat mixture and roll into balls using your palms, should make about 24 1 inch meatballs.

Heat oil in large pan over medium heat. Place the meatballs into the pan and cook, turning every couple minutes to ensure all sides cook evenly. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until fully cooked.

Remove the meatballs and set aside. Remove the pan from the heat and pour out the excess fat.

Add the barbecue sauce, water and bourbon to the saucepan and return to heat. Stir to mix the sauce together. Add in the meatballs and allow them to simmer in the sauce for at least 10 minutes.

If you prefer a thicker sauce simply halve the sauce ingredients

Slow cooker chilli

Can you guess I’m new to a slow cooker?

This is a good Family meal, enough for 5 adults and cooks itself if your out for the day.

Not going to use it all at once, then freeze it in batches.

 

Ingredients

1 Tbsp oil

1 1/2 onions, chopped

600g minced beef

1 1/2 (400g tins) chopped tomatoes

1 1/2 (400g tins) red kidney beans

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3 Tbsp tomato puree

3 – 4 tsp chilli powder, depending on how you like it

1 beef stock cube, dissolved in hot water

salt and pepper

 

Method

 

Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onions and cook for a few minutes until softened. Drain off excess oil and put onions into slow cooker.

Brown the mince in the same pan, in batches if necessary. Drain any excess fat off and add the mince to the onions in the slow cooker.

Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker and stir well. Season to taste.

Cover and cook on high for 3 hours, then auto for 5 hours or low for 6 – 7 hours.
