If I had the power in me, I would claim whiskey as a spirit of Life. It’s the best thing ever happened to mankind. It's so good that it's perfectly alright to consume it in every other possible way. This time around I am going to do some exciting recipes with whiskey for your killer parties ahead.
So today, I will whip up a super cool and quick party bite - Meatballs glazed in a sweet and sour whiskey sauce. Meatballs and whiskey are a match made in heaven, and incase you did not know that try out the recipe and you will understand why.
Serves- 4-6 persons
Cooking time- 15 mins
Prep time- 10 mins
For the Meatballs –
500 gms of good quality Lamb mince (Chicken Lovers you know what to do)
3-4 fresh sprigs of Thyme
2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
A pinch of freshly grounded Black Pepper
Salt to taste
1 tsp of cornflour (optional, for binding the meat)
Mix all the ingredients together and combine well. Make Bite sized Meatballs and store it in the fridge for atleast ½ hour before cooking.
For the Sauce –
½ cup of tomato ketchup
½ cup of brown sugar
¼ cup of whiskey
Juice of half a lime
1 tsp of worcestershire sauce
Heat Oil in a pan. Once heated, add the meatballs and cook them through. Keep flipping them in the pan to cook it well from all the sides.
Once the meatballs are cooked through, Remove them in a plate and retain the pan.
Use the same pan and add all the ingredients of the sauce and cook it on a medium heat till everything combines well. It should have a saucy consistency.
** To check for the consistency, swirl a spoon in the sauce and if the sauce coats the back of the spoon well, it means your sauce is ready.
Add the meatballs and stir in till the sauce is glazed well all over the meatballs.
Serve on a Bed of shredded lettuce and pierce a toothpick in each for a non-messy affair. Sprinkle some black and white sesame seeds forgarnish.
Even if this recipe says it serves 4-6 people, it doesn’t really work like that.
Make an extra batch ready because this baby is going to go like hot cakes. When I served them to people around me they just did not stop popping them up one after the other. You can pre cook the meatballs and keep, however I would advice the sauce to be made at the time of serving as you get the taste of whiskey the best when its freshly cooked. Do cook this one up and holla back.
Untill next time!
