  • 1 tablespoon chopped coriander


  • Mix the mince beef with half onion, chopped, and one egg, until get a paste similar to a burger mix. Roll small balls of around 30g each and roll on a little cornflour, this will prevent the meatballs to split and will add consistency to your sauce. Keep in the fridge.

  •  On a sauce pan heat the olive oil and slightly fry the tomato puree, and add the tomato paste, allow to cook for 30 seconds and add the beef Bone tea. Cook on a low heat until starts boiling, drop the meatballs one by one to the sauce, and cook for a further 15min. 
  • As easy as this.
