Macaroni with meatballs and carrots is a popular dish that delights both kids and adults. Its preparation is so easy that even children can try to cook it on their own. Here is the recipe offered by Les Délices d’Annie.
The necessary ingredients for 6 persons:
– 600 gr of macaroni
– 500 gr of ground beef
– 700 gr of carrots
– 25 gr of butter
– 25 gr of flour
– 2 garlic cloves
– 1 beef broth cube
– 1 red onion
– 1 egg
– 20 cl of beer
Preparation of beef balls and carrots
Salt and pepper the ground beef at your convenience. Beat the egg in omelette.
Peel the garlic and onion and chop them finely.
Add the garlic, onion, beaten egg and flour to the meat then shape it into balls. Les Délices d’Annie recommends you to slightly oil your hands, which prevents the meat from sticking to fingers and the palm of the hand.
Peel carrots, clean and cut into fairly thin slices.
Brown the meatballs in a pan with a small quantity f olive oil for 5 minutes. Add two tablespoons of water. When all the water has evaporated, add the carrot slices and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the beer and let it simmer until the liquids are completely reduced. Then sprinkle the contents of the pan with paprika. Remove from the fire and set aside.
Boil some water in a large saucepan with the beef broth cube. When the water boils, add the macaroni. Cook according to the time indicated on the package.
Drain the macaroni when they are cooked and put them in a large bowl. Add a spoonful of oil or a knob of butter.
Pour the meatballs into the macaroni and serve hot.
