Take your egg and put it In a bowl.
To the eggs add the sofrito
Now let's take the bread and soak it in some water.
Now let's add our seasoning(yes a little odd looking nevertheless it is the way I prefer to make this)😄, first the garlic powder
The onion powder
The tomato bouillon
And lastly the adobo
Mix this in well. Check for salt and add it if necessary.
Add the egg concoction to the ground beef
Mix this in well with your hands
All mixed in.👍
Now let's make meatballs. Take 2 tbs worth of beef and roll it into a ball. or make them any size you want.😊
My meatballs are all done. Now to fry them
In a pot over medium high heat add the oil
Add just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pot. We want to brown the meatballs not deep fry them.
Add the meatballs to the oil. If possible use a nonstick pan when frying. They might stick to the bottom of a regular pot.
While the meat balls are frying slice up some onions and peppers and set them aside.
This is how it should look like.i have finished cooking all my meatballs now to make the sauce
In the same pot over medium heat, add the red peppers
And the onions too
To the tomato sauce add 1/2 Cans worth of water.
After you have added the meatballs we will add some olives
And some olive juice
Let's flavor the sauce a bit with tomato bouillon(totally optional). I personally like the flavor😀
Let it cook until the sauce has thickened and reduced to half.
Enjoy Albondigas a la manera Dominicana with rice and beans. Some avocado would be excellent as well
