Swedish meatballs


500g beef mince

1 egg

4 green shallots, thinly sliced

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh continental parsley

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

80ml (1/3 cup) Massel Beef Style Liquid Stock

2 tsp Dijon mustard

180ml (3/4 cup) pouring cream

600g steamed cauliflower, coarsely chopped

150g fresh green beans, steamed


Combine the beef, egg, shallot, parsley, garlic, allspice and nutmeg in a large bowl. Season well. Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs, turning often, for 6-8 minutes or until golden and just cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

Add the stock, mustard and 125ml (1/2 cup) cream to the pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Return the meatballs to the pan and simmer for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

Place the cauliflower and remaining cream in a food processor and process until smooth. Season.

Divide the cauliflower mash among serving plates. Top with the beans, meatballs and sauce. Season. Serve scattered with parsley.
