Chilli Beef Melts
“Goodness gracious great balls of fire” ..........Well actually small delightful balls of scrumptiousness.
This is the type of party food that your guests will want to try and make themselves when they get home.
You will need;
350 Gm - Minced Beef
50 Gm - Tomato Paste
30 Ml - Tomato Ketchup
1 teaspoon – Paprika
1 teaspoon - Coriander
2 teaspoons - Hot Chilli Powder
½ teaspoon - Garlic Granules
250 Gm – Cheese (of your choice)
1 – Egg (beaten)
Put all the ingredients except the cheese into a food processor and grind down to a sausage meat kind of texture.
Place it in a bowl and pour in your beaten egg, now get your hands in there and work the egg in to the mix.
Cut the cheese into bite sized pieces about 1 – 1 ½ Cm cubed, you can use whatever cheese you like but a pliable cheese is best so that you can roll it into a ball so I've used brie.
Tear off a piece of you meat mix and roll into a ball then flatten, press the cheese into it and roll it into a ball covering the cheese evenly.
Shallow fry them on a low to medium heat for about 15 minutes so that the meat is cooked through, they will pop open in places and reveal the cheese but don’t worry because it will make them look all the more appetising.
Pile them on a plate and serve with a garnish.
