  • 1 x Royco Beef Marinade
  • 1 x egg
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 slice of white bread
  • ½ cup milk
  • 60ml oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 10g coriander,  leaves chopped
  • 500g beef mince


  • Place half the Royco Beef Marinade into a bowl and whisk together with 1 egg.
  • Place the other half of the Royco Beef Marinade into a pot with 80ml water and honey. Allow to simmer gently until thickened. 
  • Soak the bread in the milk for 5 minutes. Once soaked, remove from the milk and squeeze out any excess milk. Mash up the bread with a fork.

  • Add the coriander and turmeric powder, fry for a further 2 minutes then remove from the heat.
  • Add the onion mix, Royco Beef Marinade and egg mix, the mashed bread and chopped coriander to the beef mince.
  • Mix well, seasoning with salt and pepper. Roll the mince mix into even size balls, approximately golf ball size, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  • Place a large pan on the stove top over a medium heat. Add the remaining oil.
  • Once hot, add the mince balls, gently frying until golden all over and almost cooked through. 
  • Add the marinade and honey mix to the pan with the frikkadels, lower the heat and toss them well through the marinade until cooked through. 
  • Serve warm as a snack.
