Minced meat is the most popularly sold meat in the market as a result of its many uses, its reasonable price and good taste.
As a change from the perpetual hamburger, this week I suggest that you use it to make Swedish meatballs. The berry of a pimiento tree (also known as allspice) is added to the mix and the meatballs are brushed with a brown sugar and mustard sauce.
If you prefer, you can replace the beef either partially or completely with ground pork, veal or chicken.
