“I am very fond of meatballs, but most of them are either dry or not very tasty. My mother in law made these, and it has always tickled my tastebuds. When I cut a meatball, I like it to be soft, and it must not be hard and dry. These balls are soft and break easily, so watch it when your turn them over. Made on stove top in a pan with very little oil.”
10-12 meatballs

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 750 g ground meat (think any meat, but I mostly use beef or beef and pork in equal parts)
  • 12 cup flour
  • 12 teaspoon baking powder (not baking soda)
  • salt & pepper
  • about 1/4 cup vinegar (ordinary kind and this depends on your taste)


  1. Mix together, but lastly add the baking powder.
  2. Roll into balls, place in medium heated pan with a little oil, not to hot, on the stove top.
  3. Turn carefully a few times until done. ( the time will depend on the size of the balls, but generally about 15 to a max of 25 minutes.).
