Beef rissoles recipe

Beef mince rissoles are one of our favourite comfort foods and they can be flavoured in any way you want. If you feel like the taste of Asia, just add some Thai spices. If an Indian-inspired spiciness is what you’re after, a good pinch of curry powder in the mix will do the trick. And if a Mediterranean influence is what you’d like, add some oregano and thyme. And don’t forget the gravy or sauce. Be inspired by a world of flavour choices to make the best beef rissoles.
