About this recipe: Quick and easy to make meatballs with that pack an onion punch. Can be made in the oven on or on the BBQ.


Serves: 2 

  • 400g lean minced beef
  • 2 small red onions or 1 medium red onion
  • 1 tablespoon garlic granules
  • 2 tablespoons hot chilli powder
  • black pepper to season

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Grate two-thirds of the onions into a mixing bowl. Roughly chop one-third of the onions and add to mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients to bowl and combine well. Form mixture into 8 balls (may be a tiny bit loose but still holding consistency).
  3. Place meatballs on baking tray (no need to grease unless it is horribly non-stick!) and season with black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or till cooked through (enough time to wash up and open the wine). Serve with a crisp green salad.

Cook's note

I love onions so you may want to reduce the amount if you don’t like them or are planning something more romantic than beer & television!

Went looking for a recipe for minced beef (soooo fed up with shepherds pie!). These meatballs are fantastic! I made a tomato suace (with garlic) and served with pasta for a satisfying meal. Have served these several times now. Easy and tasty. Great!!! - 03 Nov 2011
