Served with the pasta of your choice, a side of vegetables, or simply on its own. These meatballs are a quick and tasty meal to satisfy the hungriest of cravings.

This recipe makes around 10 meat balls, enough for 1-2 people.

What you’ll need:
250g lean beef mince
1 glass of red wine
a bunch of fresh parsley
1/2-1 onion
4 tomatoes
1 egg

Combine the beef mince, finely diced onion, egg and chopped parsley. Season with the salt and pepper.

Heat a pan with oil.

Roll the mince into balls, and place as many as will fit into the pan.

Cook on a medium heat for around 5 minutes and turn.

Pour in the red wine. Cook all sides of the meatballs for around 5-10 minutes more until cooked all the way through.

Remove the meatballs from the pan.

Add the chopped tomatoes, and cook for around 5 minutes on medium heat until the tomatoes are reduced and sauce thickens.

Re-add the meatballs, and stir around until they are covered in the sauce.
