"Tefteli" (meatballs with rice)

Tefteli meatballs with rice
  • 2 lb beef (~60% of all meat)
  • 1.5 lb pork (~40% of all meat)
  • 1/3 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 medium onion
  • Flour
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  1. Grind beef and pork (in a meat grinder) together twice. (You can use purchased ground beef and pork if you don't have a meat grinder. However, the taste is much better if you grind it yourself).
  2. Chop onion very finely and cook in a skillet in vegetable oil, stirring, until golden, then add the onion to the ground meat.
  3. Cook the rice according to package directions and add it to the ground meat.
  4. Add salt and pepper and mix everything.
  5. Take a piece of ground meat with a tablespoon, form a round cutlet, roll in some flour, and cook in a large skillet in vegetable oil about 15-20 minutes (until no longer pink inside), turning over a few times while cooking.
