Good morning my friends, spicy red soutzoukakia for today . Really delicious . Wanna try this??? Let me help you
ground beef: 600 gr.
minced lamb: 250 gr.
onion: 1 medium, grated on a grater
garlic: 3 cloves, beaten in a mortar with salt
egg: 1 beaten
stale bread: 2 slices (crumb), soaked in water and squeezed
parsley: 2 tablespoons, finely chopped
salt: as much as you want
white pepper: freshly ground
cumin: 1 teaspoon chopped
olive oil: 1/2 cup of tea for frying
flour: for frying
For the sauce:
tomato tomato juice: 500 gr., concentrated
olive oil: 1/2 cup of tea
onion: 1 large, grated on a grater
garlic: 2 cloves, finely chopped
In a large bowl, knead all the ingredients for the soutzoukaki -except olive oil and flour- and leave the mixture in the fridge for 2 hours to mix the aromas of the ingredients. Then shape the soutzoukaki and lightly flour them. Fry them in hot oil and let them drain well on absorbent paper while you prepare the sauce.
For the tomato sauce, steam the onion in 1 cup of water until soft. When the water has evaporated, add the oil and garlic and sauté lightly. Add the herbs, tomato juice, allspice, a little sugar and a little hot water.
When the sauce boils, lower the heat and add the soutzoukaki one by one, making sure the tomato sauce covers them. Bring to the boil until the sauce thickens and the liquids evaporate. Serve the soutzoukaki with mashed potatoes, rice or french fries
Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people
My best wishes from Greece
