Ingredients

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 450g minced pork (or lamb)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 sprigs dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3-4 tbsp soured cream

Tip

Prefer lamb?
Minced lamb will work just as well here if you fancy a change from pork.

Method

  1. Mix together the onion, pork, egg yolk and half the dill in a bowl. Lightly wet your hands, then shape the mixture into 12 balls, each about the size of golf ball.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Tip in the meatballs and fry, turning often, for about 12-15 mins until golden all over. Mix together sour cream and remaining dill, then spoon over the meatballs. Serve with mashed potato or tagliatelle.
