Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the rice

    Boil 300ml water in a non-stick lidded saucepan then add the CHICKEN STOCK and mix well. Add the rice, bring it back to the boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 10-12 mins.

  • 2.

    Pan-fry the meatballs

    Heat a little oil in a pan over medium-high heat, then fry the onion for 2 mins.

    Add the meatballs, sprinkle the CAJUN SEASONING over them and fry until they've browned on all sides. (Drizzle a little more oil over them if looking dry).

  • 3.

    Make the sauce

    Add the pepper and fry for 2 mins.

    Stir in the chopped tomatoes, and the HOT PEPPER SAUCE, then cook over a medium heat for 8-10 mins. If you'd prefer it a bit saucier, mix 50ml water into the sauce.

    Taste the sauce and add 1 tsp of sugar, if desired.

  • 4.


    Serve the rice with the meatballs and sauce on top.

John - Dec 03, 2019

I made my own meatballs from lean mince meat, breadcrumbs and a splash of milk to stick the meat together. Also when making your own meatballs, you can mix the spices all the way through the meatballs instead of just the outside ???????? Really tasty dish have ordered again we couldn't get enough! Had to add a few chilli's to up the heat and had them with spaghetti instead of rice ???????? unreal. Keep up the good work guys ????

I like more sauce so used a whole 400g tin of chopped tomatoes, lovely hot and sweet sauce. Adding the sugar was a great idea. Nice and sticky sauce.

Wasn’t bad at all

Jacqueline - Oct 24, 2019

Grace - Oct 23, 2019


Paula - Oct 23, 2019

It was ok

Julie - Oct 23, 2019

Lovely, definitely needed the extra spoon of sugar at the end.

Susan - Oct 13, 2019

Not our favourite. Maybe we expected more from the flavours, it just didn’t work... maybe we just prefer Italian meatballs made our own way
