Beef Meatballs in a Dairy-free Creamy Onion Sauce
bowl, blender, nonstick pan
- 333⅓ g beef mince
- 1⅓ onions
- 2⅔ cloves garlic
- 1 tsp pink salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
Blend one onion, two garlic gloves, 1 tsp pink salt and 1 tsp black pepper into a smooth paste. Add a little bit of oil and water if the paste gets too thick. Pour the blend into a bowl; add 1 tbsp dried parsley and the minced beef. Mix everything thoroughly, then form balls with your hands (use a scoop to get the perfect size.
- nonstick pan
Heat up the pan before adding the oil. Fry the meat balls for 4 minutes each side. When ready, remove them from the pan and immediately add two gloves of garlices and slices of one onion.
- 133⅓ ml coconut cream
- ⅔ tbsp coconut amino sauce
- 33⅓ ml water
- ⅓ tsp arrowroot flour (or cornstarch)
When the onions and garlic are browing, add the amino acid sauce and let it simmer on medium to low heat. Add salt, black pepper, dried parsley and dried thyme. Stir and add the coconut cream gradually. Let it cook up for one minute before putting the meatballs back into the pan and adding water (less is more). Cover the pan and let the sauce simmer again for 4-5 mins. If the sauce is too runny, you can thicken it with the arrowroot powder or cornstarch.
Add a side of your choice. Goes well with a (sweet) potato mash or homemade potato chips. Sauerkraut or any other fermented vegetables give a nice contrast to the rich and slighty sweet flavour of the creamy onion sauce. Enjoy!
