500g Minched Beef
500g Minched Pork
ca 2 Tbsp Salt (I measure it in the loaf of my hand.. so one loaf is just right)
1 tsp Black Pepper
a pinch of Cayenne Pepper
2 tsp red bell pepper powder
2 tsp Chilantro powder
2 Cloves Garlic crushed
1 big onion finely chopped
5 to 6 slices of bread wet in water and squeezed and crumbled to the meat dough
1 egg

Mix all ingredients and let stand for a while. It´s good to let the dough stand to break. If the dough is too wet it´s great to add some bread crumble so it´s easier to make the small balls, like the size that fits into a teaspoon.

Fry the meatballs in olive oil only a few at a time. Drain on kitchen towel and keep warm til all meatballs are fried. Then put them all together back in the pan to fry them through over lower heat. Meanwhile make sauce:

This one turned up when I was experimenting with making Meatballs and it turned out so delicious so I want to share it with you :) Note I avoid cooking with cream therefore I use milk instead and it´s delicious.
