Peanut butter meatballs 

Ingredients (approx. 16 pieces)

  • 17,5 oz ground beef  
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 1,5 tsp sambal oelek 
  • 1 tsp sambal badjak 
  • 1 egg 
  • 3 tbsp sweet soy sauce (ketjap manis) 
  • 1 tsp coriander powder 
  • 1 tsp paprika powder 
  • 1 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 tsp brown sugar 
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter 
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs (panko) 
  • Black pepper 
  • Salt 


Mix the peanut butter, garlic, sambal oelek and badjak, egg, sweet soy sauce, coriander powder, paprika powder, onion powder, brown sugar, black pepper, and salt to taste in a bowl. Mix the marinade with the ground beef and add about 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs (panko). You may add a little more breadcrumbs gradually if necessary. 

Preheat the air fryer to 390F. Place a sheet of parchment paper in it and place the meatballs on top. Bake the meatballs for 15 minutes, 8 minutes at 390F and 7 minutes at 320F. Flip the meatballs during the temperature change. 

Don’t have an air fryer? Bake the meatballs in 15 to 20 minutes in a frying pan until golden brown, turning them regularly while baking. 

Enjoy your meal!
