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.
Remove the excess water by squeezing it gently(yes my hand are not just clean BUT super clean😛😉) add the bread to the egg mixture and mix it in well
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
Blend it in well.
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.😊
Just a small tutorial In case you don't know how to roll meatballs 😉😁😜
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.
Gently turn the meatballs . We want to semi cook the meatballs. Doesn't matter if the meatballs are under cooked. They will finish off in the sauce.
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
Sauté this for a few minutes than add the tomato sauce.
To the tomato sauce add 1/2 Cans worth of water.
Let this cook for a few minutes. Next up is the star. The meatballs 😍add it right in.
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.
Reduced to half with just enough sauce to cover the meatballs 😊
Enjoy Albondigas a la manera Dominicana with rice and beans. Some avocado would be excellent as well
