Chorizo & Pork Meatballs with Sherried Tomato Sauce


Mix all of the ingredients and shape in to whatever size meatballs you fancy.

Then bake in oven or pan fry to gain some colour. (It’s sometimes a good idea to pan fry just one to check for seasoning.)

Sherried tomato sauce

Fry 1 x medium chopped onion in 2 tbs of olive oil.

Add 1 kilo ripe peeled & chopped tomatoes plus 1 x large glass of dry sherry.

Let it reduce.

Add chopped parsley and passata.

Put the meatballs into an oven to table dish, pour over the tomato sauce and then put into the oven or add albondigas to the tomato sauce pan and heat until it bubbles.

Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.
