Cooking with PJ Vadas: Farmer Angus Beef Meatballs

Beef and feta meatballs


  • 500g Farmer Angus beef mince
  • 4 garlic cloves – minced
  • 2 tbs finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tbs fresh thyme
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 100g feta
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 50ml Rozendal vinegar
  • 1l Farmer Angus bone broth


  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl except the broth and mix thoroughly by hand.
  2. Roll into balls.
  3. Bring a pan to medium heat. Add olive oil and fry meatballs for 5-6 minutes, turning carefully until golden brown. Add bone broth and reduce by half.
  4. Bake meatballs in the oven at 180°C until cooked, I like mine slightly pink in the middle.
  5. Serve with some Lowerland organic polenta.
