Red Center Meatballs

Red Center Meatballs


  • 1 clove garlic -- crushed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried red chiles -- such as piquin
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro -- chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root -- finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomatoes -- finely minced
  • salt -- to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 pound kangaroo meat or lean ground beef -- minced
  • vegetable oil for frying


  1. Combine the garlic, chiles, cilantro, ginger, tomatoes, salt and bread crumbs and mix well. Pinch off egg-sized pieces of meat and flatten them in the palm of your hand. Place a small amount of chile mixture in the center and roll up carefully to close. Continue until all the meat and filling is used. Heat a large heavy fry pan over moderately high heat and fry the meatballs, turning constantly until browned and cooked through.
    Serve with hot steamed rice or cooked noodles, or with a salad.
