Meatballs can be served instead of cutlets with potatoes, porridge, or pasta. The products need to be stewed in the sauce, and then they will be very soft and juicy. In addition to the minced meat, you need to add a few more simple ingredients to the base.

The idea of making meatballs was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Zhanna Humeniuk (kotlet tkaa). The products will be much more satisfying if you add cauliflower and bulgur to the minced meat.
