  • 450g Beef minced
  • 1 medium onion grated
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed
  • ½ red chillis deseeded finely chopped
  • 3 tbs tomato ketchup
  • 100g Cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • Salt, pepper to season


    1. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
    2. Then shape into equal size balls, should make 6 to 10 depending on what size you prefer.
    3. put the balls on to a plate, cover and Place into a fringe for 30mins so thay hold their shape.
    4. Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Place the chilled meatballs into the oil and fry gently on a low heat for about 20mins turning occasionally until browned.
    5. Once cooked serve with spaghetti and a sauce of your choice. I like Tagliatelle and a spicy tomato sauce.
