Cooking Instructions

1 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

Peel, core and roughly chop the apples and add to a pot with a lid with 150ml [300ml] cold water and 2 tsp [4 tsp] sugar

Cook, covered, over a medium heat for 10-15 min or until the apples have softened

Once softened, add a knob of butter and mash with a fork until smooth – this is your apple sauce

2 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Chop the potatoes (skins on) into large bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a baking tray with a drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for an initial 10 min

3 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

While the potatoes are cooking, boil a kettle

Peel and grate the brown onion[s]

Top, tail, peel and slice the carrot[s] into rounds

Chop the sage finely, including the stalks

4 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

Add the grated onion, pork mince, panko breadcrumbs and chopped sage to a large bowl with a generous pinch of salt and mix thoroughly until fully combined (clean hands is the best way!)

Divide the pork mixture into 6 [12] and shape into meatballs – these are your sage & onion meatballs

5 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

Once the potatoes have had 10 min, add the meatballs and carrot rounds to the tray

Drizzle the carrots with vegetable oil, season with a pinch of salt and return the tray to the oven for a further 10-15 min or until everything is cooked through

Meanwhile, dissolve the 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 250ml [450ml] boiled water and stir in the Marmite

6 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

Once the apple sauce is done, transfer it to a bowl and wipe the pot clean

Return the pot to a medium-high heat with a knob of butter

Once melted, add 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] flour and cook for 30 secs, stirring to form a paste

Add the Marmite stock and bring to the boil over a high heat, cooking for 5-6 min or until thickened – this is your gravy

7 2319 - Sage & Onion Pork Meatballs With Apple Sauce

While the gravy is thickening, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a knob of butter over a medium heat

Once hot, add the shredded kale and cook for 3-4 min or until tender with a slight bite
