- 600g ground mutton (hamburger meat works fine)
- 50g pine kernels
- 2 cans of tomato sauce (or 1 kg fresh tomatoes)
- 2 onions
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil
- An appropriate quantity of cooked white rice
Finely chop the onions and mix them with the meat along with salt and pepper. Knead well and make balls the size of a nut. Dig each ball with a finger, stuff a few pine kernels in and close it again. Brown the balls in half the buter and put them in a greased baking dish. Cover in tomato sauce (if canned, dilute it with 1 and 1/2 glass of water). Cook for 25 mn at medium high. Turn over the balls after half the time has passed.
Serve hot on white rice.
