Richmond Mini Meatballs Stroganoff

Richmond Mini Meatballs Stroganoff with Vegetable Savoury Rice
I recently had the opportunity to try the new Richmond Mini Meatballs as part of the BritMums' Hungry To Happy Challenge. Rather than being beef meatballs they are made of pork like Richmond sausages. 

Their selling point is that they are easy to prepare and take just 8 minutes in the oven to cook. You could of course serve them simply with a selection of potatoes, vegetables or baked beans but here's a way to make things a little more interesting but doesn't take long to cook and prepare either.

We served ours with savoury vegetable rice. This is easy cook rice boiled as normal with a chicken stock cube in it to give it some extra flavour. When the water starts to boil add finely chopped carrots and a few minutes before it is ready add frozen peas and sweetcorn and finely chopped red pepper. You can of course just have plain rice or pasta but remember to start it cooking first.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves 4

Equipment: Baking tray, large frying pan


1 packet Richmond Mini Meatballs
1 tbsp (15ml) Oil
1 Onion, sliced
4 Mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp (15ml) Tomato purée
300ml carton of Low Fat Soured Cream
¼ tsp (1.25ml) Ground nutmeg
1 Green pepper, sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4
2. Prepare the vegetables while the oven is heating.
3. In the frying pan put the oil and start to heat up.
4. Put the Richmond Mini Meatballs on a baking tray and place in the oven to cook for 8 minutes.
5. Fry the onions and mushrooms until the onion starts to soften.
6. Add the tomato purée, soured cream, nutmeg, pepper and any salt and pepper you like.
7. Heat through until the Meatballs are ready and add them to the frying pan and stir in.

Serve with rice or pasta.
