Ingredients

  • 2 medium red onions, diced.

Method

  1. In a large pot over a high heat add a drizzle of the oil. Fry the meatballs for around 3-5 minutes till nice and brown on all sides, then remove from the pot and places to one side.

  2. Add the carrots, onions, bacon and a pinch of chilli flakes, season and add another drizzle of oil if need be. Fry over a medium to low heat for 10 minutes so that the bacon gets crispy and veg starts to get soft. Then add the garlic and fry for another 3 minutes.
