Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Hoisin Beef Meatballs

Rinse the rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook for 15-20 min or until tender with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and return to the pot and cover until serving

2 Hoisin Beef Meatballs

Meanwhile, grab a clean plate for the next step

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Combine the garlic, beef mince, egg, breadcrumbs and 1 (2) soy sauce sachets in a large mixing bowl 

Season generously with salt and pepper and mix well (use clean hands) 

3 Hoisin Beef Meatballs

Divide the mince mixture into 6 (12) portions

Shape each portion into a ball (use wet hands for easy shaping)

Transfer the balls onto your plate and refrigerate until step 6

4 Hoisin Beef Meatballs

Wash, quarter and shred the cabbage very thinly (discard the woody stem)

Heat a large, wide-based pan (with a matching lid) over a high heat with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) vegetable oil

Once hot, add the shredded cabbage and cook on a high heat for 2 min

5 Hoisin Beef Meatballs & Sesame Cabbage

Add a lid, turn the heat down to medium and cook for a further 4 min or until the cabbage is cooked but retains a slight crunch

Once cooked, remove from the heat

Add the remaining soy sauce, sesame oil and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) sugar to the cabbage and mix through, then cover and set aside until serving 

6 Hoisin Beef Meatballs & Sesame Cabbage

Heat a separate pan with 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil on a medium-high heat

When hot, add the meatballs and cook on each side for 3 min

Add a lid and cook for a further 5-10 min or until cooked through

Set the table or do a little washing up while your meatballs are cooking!

7 Hoisin Beef Meatballs & Sesame Cabbage

Remove the lid from the meatball pan and add the hoisin sauce, moving the meatballs around for 30 seconds so that they are evenly coated and glazed
