400g Minced beef
1 Onion, finely grated
1 Clove garlic, chopped
25g Cheese, grated
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 tsp Salt
750ml Oxtail soup packet
1kg Potatoes, scrubbed and pierced
Preheat the oven to 175C/350F/Gas 4.
Place the potatoes in the oven (make sure you pierce the potatoes with a knife or a skewer otherwise they'll explode, and that takes ages to clean up!)
Mix beef, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, parsley, cheese and seasoning together in a large bowl. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Shape into about 16 balls (walnut sized).
Meanwhile make up the soup as directed and set aside. Place meat balls in a large casserole, pour over the oxtail soup and place in the oven for 45 minutes.
Scoop out the baked out the potatoes and mash with butter and milk (or not!)
Serve in the casserole with the mash and fine beans.
