Servings 4


  • frying pan
  • Saucepan + potato masher


  • 15 ml olive oil


  • 250 g pork mince
  • 250 g beef mince
  • 1 onion grated or very finely diced
  • 1 slice bread
  • 120 ml milk
  • 2 g fresh dill chopped


  • 300 ml beef stock Use stock cube
  • 200 ml single cream
  • 5 g fresh dill chopped
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 7.5 ml worcestershire sauce 1 tsp
  • 0.5 tsp Dijon Mustard


  • 750 g white potatoes peeled, cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 100 ml milk



  • Boil cubed potatoes until fork tender (about 8minutes), drain, mash with butter, salt and milk until smooth. Keep warm.


  • While potatoes are cooking soak the slice of bread in the milk, gently squeeze out excess milk then add to a mixing bowl with the rest of the meatball ingredients. Mix together with your hands (don't overwork it), season generously with salt and pepper and roll into pingpong size balls.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the meatballs for 3 minutes each side until nicely coloured, then remove onto a plate (they don't have to be fully cooked).
  • In the same pan add a small knob of butter and stir in the flour, once fully incorporated remove from the heat and slowly pour in the beef stock (I used a whisk at this stage), return the pan to the heat and whisking/stirring continuously.
  • The sauce will start to thicken, now add all the remaining gravy ingredients, once fully incorporated, reintroduce the meatballs to the pan (along with any juice) and gently simmer for a few minutes until piping hot.
  • Serve on mashed potato with any leftover dill for garnish.


Use any mince you prefer.
