Saturday Sandwich 28: Meatball Sub

I've been looking forward to this Saturday's sandwich all week. JD and I have tried meatball subs before but were quite willing to try them again for the benefit of this post :)

Ingredients: sub rolls, minced pork, onion, bread, milk, chili flakes, garlic granules, bell pepper, tinned tomatoes, sugar, parmesan, gruyere cheese, mixed herbs, salt and pepper. Maybe other things, I forget.

Soak the bread in some milk and mush up. In a bowl mix the pork, parmesan, bread and milk with your hand. Cut up the bell pepper and onion to roast in the oven.


Form the mixture into small balls and fry in a frying pan until browned.


Make the sauce from the tomatoes, sugar, herbs, garlic granules, chili flakes, salt and pepper. It says to put the meatballs in the sauce and simmer for 40 minutes. We were pushed for time so I just simmered it for a bit and then thickened the sauce with cornflour and water instead.


 Cut open the sub rolls. Layer cheese, meatballs, sauce, bell pepper and onion on the sandwiches.



Everyone enjoyed this sandwich which is a rare occurrence in the Jackson household! Hot sandwiches are great and this one is moist, meaty and really filling. The sauce in particular was delicious and just a bit hot from the chili flakes. I especially enjoy sandwiches with a soft bread roll too.
