Today’s weather is cloudy with a chance of meatballs.
I am typing this post with so much VIMM! Let me tell you why.

This post right here, Sweet and Savory Ground Beef Patties was a mistake. I originally intended it to be meatballs, but when I dropped the first ball in I used a spatula and mistakenly squished it. And guess what? A different dish was born.

I promised myself to do it… since August 2016. Did I hear someone say I procrastinate? Guilty as charged. But hey,better late than never right? And this thing right here came out perfect!
Let me tell you how I made it.
1Lbs 80% Lean Ground Beef
1Lbs Pork Sausage
1 Overripe Plantain
1 Onion Bulb
1 Cup Bread crumbs
Salt, Curry, Thyme
Tomato Sauce: Red Bell Peppers, Tomatoes and Onions
- Add your well minced onions in a bowl with the meat along with 1 Tbsp of Knorr seasoning, 1 Tsp each of salt, curry and thyme.
Mash your overripe plantain, I know this is squishy but if you don’t do it who will?
- Mix in 1 cup Bread crumbs, add this to the meat bowl with the plantain, add some parsley and work it all in together to bind it.
- Moving on, grab meat the size of a golf ball and roll it between your hands to form a perfect ball. Try to make all the meatballs almost the same size.
In a pan heat some oil to low-med heat tossing and shaking the pan so it browns all around.
I had some blended roasted tomatoes and bell peppers in the fridge to be used for Obe Ata, so I used this as a sauce. Poured this in the pan and cooked this on low heat for 15 minutes. MEATBALLS READY!
