Meatballs with tomato sauce

by | Jul 5, 2016 | Meat dishes

These meatballs are made from the same meat mixture that is used to stuff cabbage leaves and wax peppers. They are cooked in salty water and eaten with tomato sauce (sometimes boiled potatoes are served as well). Meat needs to be a little saltier than usual because a large percentage of its salt content will dissolve in the cooking liquid. Besides salt, pepper and paprika I also add a dash of nutmeg and a pinch of summer savory to the mixture, but you can omit those spices if you stick to the traditional taste.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
