Love meatballs but worry about the fat content? This low-fat version will be a real treat. From BBC Good Food.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 lb ground pork (or lamb)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 sprigs dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 -4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 12 lemon, juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Mix together the onion, pork, egg yolk, salt, pepper, lemon juice and half the dill in a bowl. Lightly wet your hands, then shape the mixture into 12 balls, each about the size of golf ball.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Tip in the meatballs and fry, turning often, for about 12-15 mins until golden all over. Mix together sour cream and remaining dill, then spoon over the meatballs. Serve with mashed potato or tagliatelle.

These are delicious! The only thing I did that I would definitely do again: mix 2 tablespoons of the drippings from frying the meatballs into the sour cream/dill sauce used for serving. Thanks, English Rose! Made for the Unrulies Under the Influence, ZWT6.
