Festive cola meatballs
Its been quite a couple of busy days visiting family and friends that resulted in me having a bad cold at the moment. That’s why I’ve been a bit absent, but now I am back. Even though days are busy, you do want to put something nice and festive on the table. Even for snacking, right? So that got me thinking: how can I make something that is simple, yet delish and won’t take too much of my time. And then it hit me: I would be making festive cola meatballs! The boys from Koken met Aanbiedingen thought they’d be perfect for new years eve!
450 gr ground meat
1 medium onion
2 cloves of garlic
3 cm Ginger
3 TBsp Light soy sauce
1 can of Cola 0.33lt
1 spring onion
Peal your onion and cut it up finely. Peal garlic and grate them. Slice up the ginger.
Make little meatballs from the ground meat. In a bowl mix ground meat together with onion, garlic (1 clove) and egg.
Season with salt and pepper. Make your balls the size of a little golfball.
Fry them up in hot oil till they are golden brown. You want your meat balls to be covered with oil for 1/4.
In another pan, you fry your garlic ( 1 clove) and ginger till they are translucent.
Add in the light soy sauce and 30 cl of cola.
Let it simmer for about 10 minutes till you get a nice thick sauce.
Cut up the spring onions and sprinkle on the meatballs.
Also nice if you sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on top.
Perfect with a glass of rose champagne during the holidays!
