Plantain Dishes

Plantain Meatballs

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.

  2. 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. img_9528
  3. 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!
