  • 3/4 Pound Minced Meat *see Notes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 6 whole Allspice aka Pimenta ground
  • 1 Teaspoon dried Rosemary
  • 1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar
  • 1 Egg


  • Place the minced meat into a large bowl.
  • Season with salt, black pepper, ground allspice, and rosemary.
  • Also add in the breadcrumbs, vinegar, and egg.
  • Mx everything well with a spatula. You should have a smooth perfect meatball mass.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit/180 Celsius.
  • Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Shape the meatball mass into individual same-sized meatball. Don't make them to big or they will take longer to bake and might turn undercooked in the center and dry at the edges.
  • Place the meatballs next to each other on the parchment paper.
  • Take the baking tray with the balls into the oven and bake your meatballs for about 15-20 minutes or until done at 350 Fahrenheit/180 Celsius. The baking time depends on your oven and the size of your balls. The smaller the short the baking time.

  1. I mix 50% Beef mince and 50% Pork mince. You can also use veal meat. The meat should be fatty so that the meatballs remain juicy. I explain everything in detail in the post.
