- 1 onion finely chopped
- 3 slices of bread made into bread crumbs using a food processor or just 3 handfuls of breadcrumbs
- 400g beef mince (or thereabouts)
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 3 onions, sliced
- 2 tins of tomatoes
- 3 tsp or oregano
Mix the chopped onion, bread crumbs, mince, egg, 1 tsp oregano and season. Make this into ellipsoids about the 6 or 7 cm long and 2 cm wide. Brown these in some olive oil in a frying pan then add the sliced onions (if there is not enough room in the pan take out the meat-ellipsoids) and gently fry them too. Add the rest of the ingredients and season generously (remember tomatoes usually need a bit more salt that you'd think). Simmer for about 15-20 mins (the same length of time it'll take you to cook some rice to go with it).
The photos do not make it look as good as it actually is.
