Classic beef rissoles. Super easy to make, extremely tasty and full of protein.
Fans of the Aussie movie The Castle will be familiar with the following quote:
"This is beautiful, darl. What do you call these things again?"
"Rissoles. Everyone makes rissoles, darl."
If you haven't made rissoles before, follow the easy recipe below!
How to make Beef Rissoles:
Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake. Place all of the ingredients apart from the extra BBQ sauce in a large bowl. Mix together with your hands or a wooden spoon. Shape into 6 round rissoles.
In a large frying pan, fry the rissoles for 2 minutes each side. Place on a lined baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, brush over the extra BBQ sauce then return to the oven for a further 5 minutes or until cooked through.
Easy BBQ meals are my go-to in summer. Other great ideas include BBQ Chicken Roti and BBQ Fish Tacos.

Common questions for Rissoles:
Grated onion is much finer than chopped onion. The smaller the onion, the less likely my kids are to notice it.
I like to serve my rissoles with a green salad on the side. Another option is to turn them into burger patties. Simply press the rissoles into flat rounds, cook on the BBQ or in a frying pan then serve with your favourite fillings in a burger bun.
