  • 513g pack minced pork
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill (or parsley)
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 50g fresh breadcrumbs
  • ¼ level tsp mixed ground spice
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 300ml hot chicken stock
  • 100g Asda Reduced Fat Crème Fraîche
  • 2 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 2 level tsp cornflour
  • 500g new potatoes, boiled, to serve
  • 310g green beans, boiled, to serve
  • Put the minced pork in a large bowl with the dill or parsley, egg, breadcrumbs and mixed spice. Season and mix with your hands. Shape into 16 meatballs.

  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the meatballs until they are browned on all sides. Remove to a plate, leaving the fat in the pan.

  • Add the stock, crème fraîche and cranberry sauce to the pan and heat until simmering, stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape the juices from the base of the pan for a rich flavour.

  • Return the meatballs to the pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix the cornflour with a little cold water to make a smooth paste. Add to the sauce and bring back to the boil. Serve with the potatoes and beans.
