Messy Meatball Buns

Messy Meatball Buns

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

400g New Zealand Grass-Fed Angus Beef Mince
8 heaped teaspoons green pesto
1 X 400 g tin of plum tomatoes
1 x 125 g ball of mozzarella
Seeded Burger Buns

 

METHOD

  1. Use your clean hands to thoroughly mix the minced beef with half the pesto and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper.
  2. Split into 12 pieces and, with wet hands, roll into balls. Brown the balls all over in a non-stick frying pan on a high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, shaking the pan regularly.
  3. Once the balls turn golden, pour in the tomatoes, breaking them up with a wooden spoon, along with just a quarter of a tin’s worth of water.
  4. Bring to the boil, slice the mozzarella and lay over the balls, pop the lid on and leave to thicken for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  5. Meanwhile, warm the buns in a large dry non-stick frying pan or in the oven on a low heat.
  6. Split each bun and spread 1 heaped teaspoon of pesto inside. Split up the balls and mozzarella with a little sauce, serving the rest on the side for dunking.
