PORK MEATBALLS CREAMY BASIL:
Here’s a simple dinner to whip up. It’s yummy, creamy and so tasty.
1. Sauté ½ diced onion in some flora cuisine over medium heat in skillet until soft and translucent. Add 1 chopped garlic clove and cook for a further few minutes.
2. Add * pork meatballs and a good splash of white wine. Cook to reduce the wine. In a jug add 400ml boiling water; 1 tbsp vegetable bouillon; 1 tbsp pepper sauce powder; 1 tbsp cornflour (make sure to add this to the water gradually, stirring/whisking so to avoid it from going lumpy) and 1tbsp tomato puree paste and combine. Add this to your pot.
3. Season with paprika; salt; pepper & 4 freshly chopped basil leaves. To the pot then add 2tbsp crème fraiche and stir to combine. Simmer for few about 10minutes. Everything is cooked just need a simmer through.
4. Serve over a bowl of yummy pasta!
*For this I have used a pack of ready to eat Pork meatballs made for ALDI called “Alpenmark” mini Frikadellen meatballs. I have previously posted a blog about them as I find them great to have in the fridge. You can eat them cold in salads or on their own or hot with meals. They’re great value with 20 meatballs in each pack.
Of course, you can also make meatballs from scratch if you wish.
