Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Course Appetizer, Main Course, Snack
Cuisine Hungarian
Servings 4 servings


  • 400 g Pork & Beef minced meat mix
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Potato large
  • 2 glove Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 tsp dry Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp dry Marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp Parsley
  • Salt


  • Your first step to make crispy fried meatballs is to put water to boil and cook the potato in its skin. While that's cooking, season the meat, mix it well, then edd the egg to it, and mix it again.
  • Once the potato is cooked, peel it, and shred it. Once you're ready, add the potato to the meat and mix it all together well.
  • Your next step for deep fried meatballs recipe is to start forming small balls. The smaller they are, the faster they are cooked. However, if they are too small, they will get dry inside.
  • Put enough oil in a skillet that your meatballs will be completely covered. Heat it up and once it's hot enough, place the meatballs in. Turn the heat down to medium at this part.
  • Wait for about 3-5 minutes to check if they've got a nice golden color, and as soon as they do, take them off and put them on a paper towel, so that can soak up the oil.
  • If the skillet isn't big enough to place all the meatballs in (do not put one on top of another!), take the skillet off the stove for the time you place a new round in, then put it right away on the fire on medium heat! If you're leaving it on the heat while you're placing the meatballs in, the oil might start squirting, or it becomes too hot and the meatballs can burn.
