Best Dutch Meatballs


For 4 people

  • 8 ounce(s) lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) curry powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) pepper, ground
  • 3 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 4 floz water
  • 1/10 tablespoon(s) Ketjap manis


Mix the meat with the egg, bread, onion, salt and spices and form 4-5 meatballs. Chill for about 30 minutes. Heat the butter and brown the meatballs for about 15 minutes, turning them a couple of times. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook the meatballs for another 15 minutes, turning a few times. Remove the meatballs, add the water or beef stock and bring to a “high” heat. Add a little ketjap manis or Maggi seasoning to the mixture and you will have a lovely gravy to serve with the meatballs.
