Directions

  1. Mix the meat, egg, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs and cumin together. Add salt and pepper.
  2. Use the flour to form the meatballs with your hands ( not too small, not too big ).
  3. Deep fry the meatballs in vegetable oil in a low heat. Do not overcook them.
  4. Remove them from the pan and throw away the oil, apart from a few teaspoons.
  5. Shallow fry the tomato and peppercorns. Season.
  6. Add the tomato paste, the red wine and the stock diluted in water ( dont add too much water or the sauce will become runny ).
  7. Add a pinch of sugar and a few drops of lemon juice.
  8. Add the meatballs back to the pan and simmer in a very low heat for approximately 10 minutes, until the sauce is nice and thick.
  9. Serve with rice.
