500g lean beef mince
1 onion finely diced
1/2 tsp dry oregano
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tin crushed and sieved tomatoes
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 sweet chilli sauce (as in Asian foods)
mix the beef with the onion, salt, pepper, oregano bread crumbs and water. Season to taste.
In a pot bring the tomatoes, balsamic and chilli sauce to a simmer and allow to simmer until the sauce starts thickening.
Roll the mince into little balls and drop into the tomato sauce to cook until done. Serve on a baguette with lettuce and mozzarella cheese.
Canape alternative - prepare the sauce as above and fry the meatballs in a pan till done. Serve on a platter with the sauce as a dipping sauce.
Pasta alternative - serve the above on a bed of spaghetti sprinkled with mozzarella or parmesan cheese and a side salad.
