This is a traditional Dutch recipe passed on by my mother. It's time consuming but it makes a huge batch and you can freeze uncooked ones. These are great at parties or just pulled out of the freezer for a lazy night's dinner.

  • 1 1/2 litres water
  • 750g mince
  • 4 beef cubes
  • 1 onion, diced and fried

  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
