Albondigas Albondigas Recipe

Cook Time: 1 hour

Albondigas Recipe Ingredients (serves 8):

3/4 kg lean ground beef
3 raw eggs yolk and white
2 eggs, boiled
1 chopped garlic clove
1 whole garlic clove
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of cook white rice
2 chile chipotle
2 big tomatoes
2 tbsp wheat flour
1/2 chopped medium white onion
1/2 white medium onion
1 chicken stock cube
1 Liter water
10 cilantro branches
10 chopped branches of parsley

I also recommend serving these with Mexican rice or black or pinto beans (refried or whole), and corn tortillas. So make sure you pick up those ingredients, too, when shopping for your Mexican albondigas ingredients!

Albondigas Recipe Cooking Directions:

Start by making the meat balls: Cut the hard eggs in quarters and set them aside.

In a mixing bowl, add the meat, parsley, chopped garlic, chopped onion, raw eggs, rice, wheat, salt, and pepper. Mix it all together well.

Start making the albondigas recipe meatballs by placing an amount of meat you can hold in your palm. You don’t want too much or too little meat: enough to make medium sized meat balls. Place one quarter of a hard egg inside for each meat ball.

Now, make the sauce for this albondigas recipe: In a blender, mix the tomatoes, all of your garlic, the onion (all except a small slice off the edge, which we’ll use in the next step), and your chiles chipotles. Blend it all thoroughly.

In a cooking pan, add the oil and sauté that small bit of onion, and when it’s almost crispy, add the blended mix and let it simmer for five minutes.

Add the chicken stock cube and the cilantro, and wait for three before adding 1 Liter of water.

Add the meat balls to the boiling sauce and let it boil on low heat for another 15 minutes or until the meat balls are well done.

Now serve with arroz a la mexicana (Mexican rice) or some Mexican beans, and with corn tortillas. And provecho! Authentic Mexican recipes like this albondigas recipe are very easy to make, they taste amazing when you’re craving something meaty and intensely satisfying, and I think you’ll love these Mexican meatballs!
