Instructions

Cook the Chips
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm chips (peeling optional).
  • Pop the chips onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season well with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Shape the Meatballs
2
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • In a large bowl, combine pork mince, breadcrumbs and half the garlic
  • Add in ¼ tsp salt, 2 tbsp water and half the Italian herbs (double all for 4p).
  • Season with pepper and mix together by hand. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, five per person. Pop onto a separate lined baking tray.
Bake the Meatballs
3
  • Trim the green beans.
  • Roughly chop the chives (use scissors if you prefer).
  • When the chips are halfway through cooking, turn the tray then pop the meatballs into the oven.
  • Bake until the meatballs are browned on the outside and cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Boil the Green Beans
4
  • When 10 mins of cooking time remain, boil a pot of salted water.
  • When boiling, add the green beans and cook until tender, 3-5 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a sieve and pop back in the pot, off the heat.
  • Season with salt and pepper, add a knob of butter (if you have any to hand). Set aside and cover to keep warm.

TIP: To save time you can also boil the water in your kettle.

Simmer the Sauce
5
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, add the remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 secs.
  • Stir in the creme fraiche, stock powder and 75ml water (double for 4p).
  • Bring to the boil and simmer until slightly thickened, 1-2 mins.
  • Once thickened, stir in three-quarters of the chives. Season to taste with pepper, then remove the pan from the heat.
Divide and Serve
6
  • When everything is ready, stir the cooked meatballs through the creamy sauce (reheating the sauce if necessary).
  • Share the meatballs and sauce between plates.
  • Sprinkle over as much of the remaining chives as you like.
  • Serve with chips and green beans alongside.
