Vlees Kroketten or Meat Croquettes

For me this is a so-so recipe but it is fairly traditional. Be sure to let the meat cool all the way though or you'll never be able to form the patties. Most of the time comes in cooling the meat.

Well, you can leave about half these ingredient out of this recipe. Beef stock, olive oil, carrots, ground beef?, nutmeg, parseley, lemon. No wonder it's marginal. It's deffinitely not Dutch. Sounds more Indonisian. Ingredients should be. Tri tip, Butter, Flour, Eggs, Onions, Water, bread crumbs, and the key ingredient Dutch Maggi to taste. This takes about 5 hours to make due to lenght of time it takes to mixture to cool and formed before deep frying. I guarantee this recipe is'nt marginal.
