500 g ground beef
1 small onion
50-75 ml dried bread crumbs
vegetable oil (for frying)
1. Finely grate or chop the onion.
2. Mix the ground beef, the onion, the egg and the bread crumbs. Add some white pepper and salt to taste.
3. Form into 30 walnut-size meatballs.
4. Heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. SautÃ© the meatballs in two batches until browned on all sides and cooked through (approx ten minutes).
For meatballs in a brown gravy, fry the meatballs in four batches. After each of the first three batches add 3-4 tbsp of water to the skillet, stir and pour the water into a separate vessel. After the fourth batch powder 1-2 tbsp all-purpose flour over the skillet, stir, add 3-4 tbsp cream, stir, add the water from the first three batches, stir, add some Japanese Soya sauce, stir and bring to a slow boil, then add the fried meatballs and heat for a few minutes.
