Mum's Rissoles

Course Main Course
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 500 grams beef mince (not too lean)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs (I also added fresh herbs but mum uses dried herbs only)
  • 1 tbsp smokey bbq sauce (or you could use Worcestershire sauce, or even tomato)
  • plain flour to coat the rissoles
  • oil for frying


  • Add all ingredietnts to a large bowl (excluding the flour) and combine - your hands work best. Form into balls (whatever size you prefer) and then flatten a little with your hands.
  • Coat rissoles in flour. Add enough oil to a frying pan to coat the surface, cook over medium heat until cooked through. About 10 minutes.
