Utensils

Sieve
Pot with Lid

Instructions

Make the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat and keep covered for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Char the Corn
2
  • While the rice cooks, drain the sweetcorn in a sieve.
  • Place a large pan over high heat (without oil). 
  • Once the pan is hot, add the sweetcorn and cook until charred, 5-6 mins. Adjust the heat if necessary.
  • Stir only twice during this time—you want the sweetcorn to pick up some colour.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan. Reserve the pan for use later.
3
  • Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice the scallion.
  • Halve the cabbage, cut out and discard the tough core, then thinly slice.
  • Mix the cabbage and charred corn with the aioli.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper then set aside.
Shape the Meatballs
4
  • In a large bowl, combine the Mexican spice mix, breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
  • Add the mince, season with pepper and mix together by hand.
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, 3-4 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
5
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the meatballs until browned and cooked through, shifting as they colour, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Remove the pan from the heat then add the chipotle paste and cranberry chutney. Toss the meatballs to coat in the glaze.
  • Add a splash of water if the glaze is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
6
  • Divide the rice between bowls and top with chipotle pork meatballs.
  • Serve with the corn and cabbage slaw alongside.
  • Spoon over any glaze remaining in the pan. 
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of spiced scallion
