Delicate Chiftelute


The minced meat is poured into a larger bowl.

The dry bread is soaked in milk and after it is soaked it is added with milk over the minced meat. Pour in salt and spices - pepper and greens. Add eggs previously mixed with a fork.

The whole composition mixes well and we start beating very well and very much with the palms in the minced meat composition, until we get a uniform mass.

While we beat the meat composition well, we grease our hands, from time to time, with oil.

Let the minced meat rest for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

After that we break a piece of about 50 gr, carefully, from the composition of minced meat and form some balls - small meatballs

Arrange all the formed meatballs on a wooden or plastic bottom, greased with oil, and leave them for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oven to 200 C.

Turn all the meatballs once on a tray heated in the oven and bake them in the oven for 15 minutes, take them out of the oven.

Serve at the table with fried beans and pickled peppers.


Swedish meatballs

The sauce is a Swedish addition to the recipe, and is the very element that makes them famous. A very easy recipe to make, but with a special taste.

For those who are crazy about meatballs from IKEA, know that those are the same Swedish meatballs, and below you have a really delicious recipe that you can prepare yourself, whenever you want.

The beef soup is heated and mixed with sour cream. Add over the meatballs in the pan and leave until it starts to boil and then keep for another 2-3 minutes. It must have a slightly creamy consistency.

Add the rest of the parsley and check if it is seasoned enough.

Meatballs are served hot with rice or mashed potatoes and this creamy sauce.

Tip: if you think you don't have enough sauce the next day, you can make one of the initial quantities once more and reheat the remaining meatballs while you make it.

If you serve them with mashed potatoes, the amount of sauce is enough, but plain rice is tastier with more sauce.

Chiftelute Marinate II

So, grind the meat, mix it with the spices and greens from the recipe, which were previously washed and grated. Mix well, make the paste from which the meatballs are formed. We fry them in oil or in the oven (my case). Put the meatballs in an oven-resistant form after they have been fried.

Separately make the tomato sauce, put oil (3-4 tablespoons) in a saucepan and add 2-3 tablespoons of flour, leave on the fire for 2-3 minutes, then add the tomato broth, season with salt, sugar (if it is the case, for me it was not that I used my tomato broth that has everything it needs in it) we put the peppercorns, the bay leaves and we boil for a few minutes.

When the sauce is ready, strain it through a sieve to get rid of the peppercorns and bay leaves, and pour over the meatballs. Keep in the oven until the mashed potatoes we serve next to these marinated meatballs are ready. That's about the recipe.
What did I do?
I took the meatballs out of the freezer, put them in the pan and put them in the oven. During this time I made the sauce and when it was ready I combined the 2 and put it in the oven until the puree was ready.


Chiftelute monastery

Even her husband liked them, even though he is a hardened carnivore!

Ingredient Chiftelute monastery recipe

a 20 ml cup of rice

2 canned boiled beans / 450 g (of course you can boil the beans, I had them at home and I had to use them for something)

a teaspoon of paprika

1/3 teaspoon dried thyme

Recipe method Monastery meatballs

I washed it well and put it in a saucepan. I put 2 cups and a half of water over it, a little salt and I put it to boil over low heat.

I left until the water was well absorbed and the rice boiled.

I finely chopped the onion and sautéed it for 2-3 minutes in a little oil.

I passed the beans. You can use a blender or mash it with a mashing tool, or pass it through a meat grinder.

I put in a bowl the beans, the rice (which has meanwhile cooled), the onion, the bread soaked and squeezed well, the thyme, the parsley, the paprika and the finely chopped garlic. I adjusted the taste of salt, added a little flour and mixed well. Do not add flour from the beginning, just add a little and add only if the composition is too soft.

I put flour on the worktop and put piles of mixture. I rolled them well in flour, then I shaped them into meatballs.

I heated the oil in the pan and put the meatballs.

  • the oil must be very hot and the meatballs fried over high heat
  • do not turn often, you risk absorbing too much oil, turn with a spoon / spatula only when the meatballs are well browned on one side.
  • if you want, you can pass through a blender and rice
  • the addition of any boiled and mashed vegetables (carrot, parsnip, zucchini) is welcome

Remove the meatballs on a plate on which you put the napkins, to absorb the excess oil.


As you can see, I really like to experiment with various types of vegetable meatballs, and lentils are among my favorite ingredients when I want to make sure I get the perfect texture for meatballs. These lentil meatballs with olives and greens are very fragrant due to parsley. I'm sure these meatballs will impress even your non-vegan friends!

Tricks for the best Turkish meatballs

We learn best from experts, so we've put together some valuable tricks for you for the most delicious Turkish meatballs.

Be sure to invest in quality meat. Good meat is the essence of Turkish meatballs, so you must pay attention from this point of view. Buy fatter, beef with a 20% fat percentage, because it will keep the inside soft and fluffy. Also, make sure you bought fresh minced meat, so beware of already packaged assortments. If you can't find anything to satisfy you, you can opt for a mix of beef and mutton.

Onions should not have juice. Crush it and make sure you remove any excess juice.

Turkish meatballs come out tasty in the cast iron pan, but can be prepared in many other ways. You will melt when you eat them on the grill, but they are just as good when they are prepared with baked tomato juice (and a little healthier).
