Rissoles with Basil Garlic and Tomato Sauce

Rissoles with Basil Garlic and Tomato Sauce

Posted 2014-11-13 by Kate Matefollow
I love a good rissole, but I just feel like it needs something with it, so I drown them in my tomato based sauce and it just add that extra flavour, and helps keep them moist. This dish I made when I was feeling like meat, but didnt feel like anything else, just meat and sauce.

Rissoles with sauce, just the way I like it

Preparation Time15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 2-4 servings

For the rissoles
500 g beef mince
1 carrot grated
1 onion finely diced, brown or white
1 clove of garlic crushed
2 tablespoons of parsley chopped
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
olive oil for frying (approx 1/2 cup)
plain flour for coating (approx 1 cup)

For the Sauce
1/4 cup of tomato paste
1 cup of tomato puree
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1/4 cup basil leaves

  • In a bowl add grated carrot, onion, parsley, garlic crushed and beef mince. Mix well.

  • Mix rissole ingredients until well combined

  • Add in breacrumbs and egg and mix again until all well combined.
  • Coat each rissole in flour and place on a plate.

  • Coat each rissole in flour

  • In a fry pan add olive oil and heat on high.
  • Turn heat down to low and add in rissoles, about 2-3 at a time.

  • Turn rissoles after 12 minutes to ensure they dont brown

  • Finely chop basil leaves.
  • In a bowl add tomato paste, tomato puree, basil and garlic, mix well and set aside.
  • Turn rissoles every 1-2 minutes making sure they don't burn, when you think they are ready test by taking one out and cutting in half.
  • Line a new plate with paper towel.
  • If rissoles are cooked you can place them on top to drain excess oil.
  • Heat a second fry pan on high for 1 minute.
  • Turn off the fry pan and place the rissoles in once drained.
  • Place a lid on top. This will help keep them warm whilst the rest are still cooking.
  • Repeat the process cooking 2-3 at a time, place on paper towel and then into the dry fry pan.
  • In a small fry pan add sauce and simmer gently for 3 minutes or until just warm.
  • Place 2-3 rissoles on each plate and top them with sauce.
  • If you want this with something I think 3 or 4 types of vegetables steamed alongside this would be nice.
