Rissoles are known to be an economical everyday dish. Australian Rissole is a cross between a Patty and a Meatball which makes it a perfect meat to create with a pack of minced beef. You could simply set aside for burgers later on the week and make some spaghetti meatballs for tonight! Honestly, we just love the versatility of beef rissoles and one that is perfect for a big occasion. INGREDIENTS 1lb lean ground beef 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1 cup soft breadcrumbs 1⁄2 teaspoon dried herbs (choose your favourite) 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped 1 egg, season and beat well flour, as needed Optional: Finely grate 1 carrot and 1 zucchini plus 1/2 finely grated red or green pepper. Cook until tender in 2 teaspoons of oil over medium heat. Let cool and then add into step 1.
- Blend all ingredients well (except flour).
- Shape into medium-large balls about 2.5 inches in diameter for a main dish served with mash or salad. But if you are serving it with pasta or as an appetizer, you can choose to do a little bit smaller.
- Put flour on a plate and roll the rissoles until surface is covered. Brush off excess flour before cooking. You can also use breadcrumbs!
- Drizzle oil on a hot plate over a bbq when grilling outdoors, you can flatten the rissoles like a Patty shape to make sure it cooks through. Fry on a pan for indoor cooking until the surface is browned (around 15-20mins). If you are boiling it with sauce after, fry only to slightly brown the surfaces.
