Makes 35 small meatballs
50g mealworms or buffalo worms (whole, or blended into a flour using your food processor or mortar & pestle)
500g beef mince
1 small onion, finely diced
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1.5 or 2 beef stock cubes
pinch of salt and pepper (to taste)
3/4 drops of Worcester sauce (optional)
1 large pinch of herbs, such as marjoram or sage
1 beaten egg
How to make it?
1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan. Add onion and sweat on a low heat for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to sweat for 2 minutes, until the onions are soft but not coloured. Put the onions and garlic aside to cool. Optional: blitz the onion mix in a blender to give the meatballs a smoother texture.
2. Using a fork, mix the beef, bugs, herbs, salt and pepper until thoroughly combined. Take 1.5 beef stock cubes and add 2 tablespoons of boiling water until dissolved. Mix the stock, Worcester sauce (if using), beaten egg and cooled onion mix into the meat.
3. Using the same frying pan, fry a small amount of the meat mix and see how it tastes. Add more beef stock if necessary.
4. Using clean hands, form the meat into small balls.
5. Add a little more oil to the pan and fry the meatballs in small batches, for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned. Repeat with each batch.
6. Cut a meatball in half and check that it is cooked through; if it is, they are ready to eat!
These works well with a tomato sauce and spaghetti.
