Cooking with So Juicy®
Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C for fan oven), Gas Mark 4. Do not exceed this temperature. Remove and unfold the cooking bag from top of the sachet, keeping the red tie for later use. Add the seasoning from sachet into the bag. Roll the lean beef mince into 16-20 small balls and add to the bag, add the tin of chopped tomatoes and one sliced large red onion.
Close the bag at the end using the red tie. Mix together by gently massaging the seasoning into the ingredients. Place the bag on its side into a large ovenproof dish, spreading out the ingredients. Do not pierce the bag. Place dish on the bottom shelf of the oven. The bag expands so ensure there is enough space between racks.
Cook for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven leaving dish to stand for 2-3 minutes before opening - the steam will be very hot. Ensure that the meatballs are fully cooked through and piping hot. Enjoy the juicy Italian meatballs.
