I love Go Cook Yourself. Rob and Dan are actually two of the guys who inspired me to start bitehype. They just cook delicious shit, that’s easy to prepare – exactly my world!
I recently was browsing through his recipes and found this one recipe, where he preps some Bacon & Onion balls (note to self: don’t browse through recipe sites when hungry.). I knew I wanted to cook something similar for dinner, but bacon was out of question. So I had to improvise.
Instead of bacon I used pastrami and instead of Chickpea flour I used gluten-free flour (our supermarket doesn’t carry “fancy” flours…).
Prepped the pastrami:
Mixed the rest of the ingredients:
Formed the meatballs:
Roasted them in a pan:
And now, the bitehype aka the Swiss element: Since we only had about 180g of Pastrami for two people, I had to improvise again. So in order to make this nutritious and delicious, I added Raclette cheese!
And finally here’s the end product:
We had this with some salad as a side dish and it was amazing – absolutely recommended! Oh and I almost forgot the tasty yogurt with mint:
EDIT: The shopping list
- 180-200g of Pastrami
- 1 red onion
- 1 egg yolk (eat that egg white in the morning!)
- any kind of red pepper / chili you like
- gluten-free flour (chickpea flour works, too!)
- a bit of water
