Recipe for small meatballs with beef and vegetables

The most delicious and juicy ovenbaked miniature meatballs with vegetables. These are great as a meat-based side dish. They are also a great way to try something different with beef in case you find yourself always making the same beef recipes again and again, and you’re looking for something new. 

It is also a very simple and easy recipe to make. Prep time is only about 10 minutes and the rest is just waiting for them to finish in the oven. This makes them a perfect recipe after a busy workday in our opinion. Serve them with a delicious pasta salad, baked potatoes, or some other yummy simple sides like that. It doesn’t have to be complicated at all to try something new and refreshing.

Can I use other vegetables?
Yup, you definitely can! In our recipe we’ve used onion, garlic, spring onion and bell pepper. You can easily add things like carrots, zucchini, and other fresh herbs like parsley or chives. This will make a lot of difference to the overall flavor which is great for changing it up from time to time so you can reuse the recipe again and again.
