Plantain Meatballs

Today’s weather is cloudy with a chance of meatballs.

I am typing this post with so much VIMM! Let me tell you why.

This post right here, Sweet and Savory Ground Beef Patties was a mistake. I originally intended it to be meatballs, but when I dropped the first ball in I used a spatula and mistakenly squished it. And guess what? A different dish was born.

I promised myself to do it… since August 2016. Did I hear someone say I procrastinate? Guilty as charged. But hey,better late than never right? And this thing right here came out perfect!

Let me tell you how I made it.



1Lbs 80% Lean Ground Beef

1Lbs Pork Sausage

1 Overripe Plantain

1 Onion Bulb

Bouillon Cubes


Bread crumbs

1/2 Cup of Milk

1 Egg

Salt, Curry, Thyme

Tomato Sauce

  1. Add your well minced onions in a bowl with the meat along with 1 Tbsp of Knorr seasoning, 1 Tsp each of salt, curry and thyme.
  2. Mash your overripe plantain, I know this is squishy but if you don’t do it who will?Image result for kanye shrug gif
  3. Mix 1/2 Cup of milk, 1 egg and 1 cup Bread crumbs, add this to the meat bowl with the plantain, add some parsley and work that meat like your life depends on it.Β img_9528
  4. Moving on, grab meat the size of a golf ball and roll it between your hands to form a perfect ball. Try to make all the meatballs almost the same size.
  5. In a pan heat some oil to low-med heat tossing and shaking the pan so it browns all around.
  6. I had some blended roasted tomatoes and bell peppers in the fridge to be used for Obe Ata, so I used this as a sauce. Poured this in the pan and cooked this on low heat for 15 minutes. MEATBALLS READY!
