Meatballs with pineapple

Meatballs with pineapple

This is a recipe I made long ago for the first time, back in 2007. But I like to make it as an easy and fast lunch. The combination with pineapple and bell pepper is really great. I published it originally in Dutch, but now I translated it to English.

Ingredients (2 portions):

  • 250 grams of minced beef
  • 2 small onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 large green bell pepper
  • one can with pineapple cubes

Method:

  • finely chop the onions.
  • cut the bell peppers into fine strips.
  • Let the pineapple cubes drain.
  • Mix the minced beef with one finely chopped onion, the egg and two tablespoons of breadcrumbs.
  • Add spices (pepper, salt, …) to taste.
  • Make meatballs out of the mixture (10 to 15).
  • Roll the meatballs into the breadcrumbs, until they are covered on all sides.
  • Heat the olive oil in the wok.
  • Add the garlic.
  • Fry the meatballs for 7 minutes until they are all brown
  • Add the second finely chopped onion and the peppers.
  • Bake for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the pineapple cubes and let it warm up completely.
  • Serve in a deep bowl with rice.
