Australian Meatballs

450g ground beef
1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
2 small onions, chopped
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
1 egg, beaten
1 garlic clove, minced
1⁄2 cup milk
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon margarine
2 small onions, chopped
3⁄4 cup ketchup
1⁄2 cup beef stock
1⁄4 cup steak sauce
1⁄2 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice

1. Mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs, 2 onions, curry powder, Italian seasoning, egg, garlic, salt and pepper.

2. Gradually mix in the milk; you might not need all of it–just enough for a good meatball-making texture. Make meatballs that are about 4cm in diameter. In a greased baking dish, bake them for 30 minutes at 190 °C.

3. Make the sauce while the meatballs are baking. Melt the margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the remaining onions and cook until browned.

4. Stir in the ketchup, beef stock, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, instant coffee, brown sugar and lemon juice.
