Meatball meteors

Ingredients (8 servings)

400g lean beef mince

1 small brown onion, coarsely grated

1 small carrot, coarsely grated

2 tablespoons plain flour

1 tablespoon tomato sauce

1 tablespoon barbecue sauce

2 teaspoons olive oil

400g can diced tomatoes

1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

Method

Place mince, onion, carrot, flour, tomato sauce and barbecue sauce in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place meatballs on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a large, deep non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a large plate. Add tomatoes and 1/3 cup cold water to pan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer.

Return meatballs to pan. Simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and sauce has thickened slightly. Divide among small serving bowls or plates. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve.
