Ingredients

  • 800g ground beef
  • 1 slice of brown bread
  • 65ml water
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • A pinch of black pepper

  2. Add the meat and mix well.
  3. Divide into meatballs and pack into a baking dish.
  4. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30 – 40 minutes, turning regularly. Set aside.

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • ½ large red pepper, diced
  • ½ large yellow pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
