I stood and stared at the many rows of packaged minced meat, trying to decide which to get. Lean? Extra lean? Premium mince? Pork? Chicken? Beef?
Finally decided on extra lean beef and brought it home. When I unpacked it turns out I was so confused at the store I brought home extra lean veal instead. Oh well – it’s still the same thing only it’s a baby?
I am a meat eater but I get pretty guilty every time I see documentaries or read articles about how the meat industry is destroying our planet. So I try to cut back on it.
Anyway, back to the veal meatballs.
It was very simple and tasty – I ended up eating a lot of them in one sitting.
I followed the recipe from here very loosely – I didn’t have hoisin at home so I used barbecue instead for the dipping sauce and I added some chilli paste as well. Also, I didn’t have any breadcrumbs so I just made my meatballs without – it still turned out fine.
