Hope you are having a wonderful May Day Work free day….whoop! Whoop! . I must say, it came at a very convenient time for me because the whole Fam stayed home today to enjoy the meatballs I made early this morning. When I was done with the meat balls, I made a simple tomato sauce to go with it – Everyone enjoyed it. Then the heavy rain……Sweet Jeezzz!!! It made the weather sooooo freaking cool which is a far cry from the harsh naija Sun we’ve been putting up with.
I got the minced meat I used from the Shoprite Shopping Mall (I went to the one at ikeja). They’ve always got fresh and Very affordable goods. I got the pack of minced beef for 599Naira and guess what, they even gave me my 50+50kobo change…..lol!!!.
If you don’t have where to buy minced meat, you could also grind your meat.This is really easy to do if you have a mincer, Grinder/ food processor. It also saves a whole lot of stress and money.
To start, Wash the meat thoroughly with clean water then slice off the elastic muscles with a sharp Knife. Most times the grinder is not able to grind this part of the meat. Dice the meat into smaller chunks and place in the grinder – Grind. To skip this process, simply get minced meat.
