Instructions Instructions

  1. Firstly, combine the breadcrumbs with the milk and stir. Leave to soak in while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Cook pancetta until cooked through. Place on a chopping board and chop finely before returning to the pan. Lower the heat.
  3. Add the onion and garlic to a food processor (alternatively just grate them).
  4. Add onion and garlic to the pancetta, along with oregano and Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste. Stir and cook for about 7-8 mins.
  5. Add a splash of water, stir and continue to cook until evaporated (5-6 mins). Leave to cool slightly.
  6. In a large bowl, combine the pancetta mixture with the soaked breadcrumbs, the minced beef and pork, parsley and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  7. Mix well (with your hands preferably) and form into small balls (approx. 1inch in diameter). Pile on a plate and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
  8. In a frying pan over a medium heat, add a lug of olive oil.
  9. Add the chopped onion, celery, carrot and thyme. Stir and cook for 15 mins.
  10. Add the Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste, tomato puree and wine. Stir and cook for 5 mins.
  11. Add the beef stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 30mins uncovered or until the gravy has thickened nicely.
  12. Meanwhile, make your mashed potatoes. Peel and slice into evenly sized chunks. Add to boiling salted water and cook until tender.
  13. Drain and add Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Mayo, butter, milk and a little salt & pepper.
  14. Mash and taste to check seasoning.
  15. Pre-heat oven to 400F.
  16. In a separate frying pan, fry the meatballs over a medium heat in a little olive oil until browned (they don't need to be cooked through completely).
  17. Add meatballs to an ovenproof dish and top with gravy, gently combining.
  18. Spread over the mashed potato. Texture with a fork and sprinkle over grated cheddar cheese.
  19. Add small knobs of butter to top and place in oven for 30mins. Finish by broiling to get it crispy.
