    Sweet Brown Sugar BBQ Meatballs

    Sticky glazed meatballs that are sweet, savory and just a little spicy.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep and cook time: 30 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 30


    For the meatballs:

        •    1 egg
        •    salt and pepper
        •    1 pound ground beef
        •    2 cloves garlic, grated
        •    1/2 pound ground pork
        •    1/2 cup parmesan cheese
        •    1/2 cup Progresso™ Italian style panko bread crumbs

    For the sauce:

        •    chives for garnish
        •    1/2 cup BBQ sauce
        •    1/2 cup brown sugar
        •    2 tbsps chile flake (or to taste)


    1. Mix all of the meatball ingredients together and form your meatballs.

    2. Heat a large frying pan with a little oil and gently, one by one, add in the meatballs. After they cook for about 4 minutes, flip the meatballs and cook an additional 4 minutes. Once they're cooked on the outside, they should be a little less delicate. Making sure none are stuck to the bottom, start tossing them in the pan a little more to cook them evenly. Drain most of the fat, leaving a few tablespoons worth in the pan.

    3. Add 2 tablespoons of water to deglaze the pan, scraping up any stuck on pieces. Add the brown sugar, adding a little more water if it looks too dry. It should start to bubble and look like dark caramel.

    4. Remove from heat and add in the BBQ sauce. Stir well. Serve and top with the chives.

        •    Prep and cook time: 1-2 hours
        •    Yield: Serves 4


    For the fish cakes:

        •    50g butter
        •    2 egg yolks
        •    salt and pepper
        •    50ml vegetable oil
        •    1 lemon, quartered
        •    800g desiree potatoes
        •    2 spring onions, sliced
        •    1 tbsp capers, chopped
        •    80g cornflour (gluten-free)
        •    1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
        •    1 tbsp cornichons, chopped
        •    350g fish fillets, cut into large pieces
        •    1 handful mixed herbs (parsley, dill, basil), chopped

    For the kohlrabi and green chilli slaw:

        •    1 kohlrabi
        •    salt and pepper
        •    4 tbsps mayonnaise
        •    pinch smoked paprika
        •    handful flat-leaf parsley
        •    1 red onion, thinly sliced
        •    1 lime, finely grated zest and juice
        •    1 green chilli, seeds removed, sliced into strips


    For the fish cakes:

    1. Roast the potatoes in their skins for 50 minutes at 180C.

    2. Remove from the oven, cut in half and scoop the potato from the skins into a large bowl.

    3. Steam the fish until just cooked and add to the potato. Mix with a large spoon, breaking up the potato and fish. Add the capers, cornichons, mustard, egg yolks, herbs, spring onions, salt and pepper.

    4. Thinly slice the potato skins and add them too. Leave the mixture to cool for five minutes, then shape into small cakes.  Cool in the fridge for 30 minutes.

    5. Put cornflour on a plate, roll each fish cake in it then shallow fry in the vegetable oil and butter for three to four minutes on each side until golden brown.

    For the kohlrabi and green chilli slaw:

    1. Top and tail the kohlrabi and cut into matchsticks with a sharp knife or Japanese mandolin.

    2. Then simply throw all the ingredients into a large bowl, toss well and season to taste.

    To serve:
    Salt the slaw just before serving, or it will draw moisture from the vegetables and make the slaw too wet. Serve the fish cakes with a little more salt and a lemon quarter.

    TIP: For this recipe I bake the potatoes, scoop out the soft interior and thinly slice the crispy skins so nothing goes to waste. For a non gluten-free version you can also use up excess bread with these fish cakes. Dry it out in the oven on a low heat, then blend it to make breadcrumbs. Roll the cakes in flour, then a little egg wash, then in the bread crumbs.
