Homemade beef dumplings with vegetable sauce in Jerez

My family and I love meatballs. Both the classic ones and the meatballs of veal with my mother's dark sauce when we want to make them from meat, such as the salmon meatballs or the cuttlefish or choco meatballs when we want them from fish, all are always welcome. Lately, these homemade veal meatballs with vegetable sauce in Jerez are the ones we prepare the most because their taste is incomparable.

The secret to making this preparation is to buy good meat, ask the butcher to mince it on the spot, -once once- and prepare the recipe with all your love. To enjoy them to the fullest, you will need a good homemade bread or, failing that, get from the bakery one that is worth it, because the sauce is also a real delight.

How to make homemade beef dumplings with vegetable sauce in Jerez

  • Elaboration 15 m
  • Cooking 15 m
  • Repose 24 h

We begin by preparing the meat mixture with which we are going to make them. For this we use a good-sized bowl and there we incorporate the minced meat, the minced garlic clove into a paste, the egg, the bread crumb dipped in milk, the aromatic herbs and the spices. Mix well until obtaining a homogeneous mass.

We form the meatballs, flour them well and fry them in olive oil, trying to make them only on the outside. Then they will finish cooking in the sauce. Once fried, we reserve them to begin with the elaboration of our vegetable sauce with Sherry.

In the same oil where we have lightly browned the meatballs, we poach the onion, tomato and leek, leaving them to cook slowly without hardly taking color. It is essential to cut everything into very small pieces, because we will not pass the sauce and thus there will be no trips. So we cut the leek and onion in brunoise and the peeled tomato into pieces.

When everything is soft, add a glass of vegetable broth, a glass of sherry, preferably Oloroso, and a couple of tablespoons of chorizo ​​meat, stirring until you obtain a sauce. We re-add the meatballs to the saucepan and let the whole cook for ten minutes. If we can make them overnight, they will be even richer because with the rest, the flavors settle and intensify.

With what to accompany homemade beef dumplings with vegetable sauce in Sherry
