  1. Yum! Hubby & the kids love it. Regular in our house. I add a little gravy powder to the mix also though 🙂

  2. Another winner in our house. First words out of fussy partners mouth was ‘you gotta make this again’ great taste without being too sweet. I only cooked it for 2 and a half hours on high as I was home later than thought.

  3. If making your own rissoles how does everyone stop them from falling apart please. We don’t like butcher shop rissoles. Thank you

    1. I make my own but the #1 thing is to NOT touch them during cooking
      Leave them alone until right near the end so they stay firm and intact then it’s no worries 🙂
      If you search meatballs and rissole here you will find heaps of recipes to make your own as far as ingredients go

  4. This was a huge success in our house! I used the Coles pork and beef meatballs instead of rissoles, thickened sauce with cornflour slurry at the end and served with mash and veggies. All 4 boys and my husband cleared their plates!

  5. When I made this I only put in half the water as it looked too much & although the rissoles stayed together the sauce was way to runny. I think when I make it again I would just put the sauces & keeping checking & only add water if it looks like it needs it. Flavour is beautiful though.

  6. Made this today, used 8 x beef & veggie rissoles from artesian butcher. Cooked for 8 hours on low. Replaced water with liquid beef stock and replaced garlic powder with finely chopped large garlic clove. Made sure rissoles were mostly covered with sauce then set on low and went to work. Got home 7 hours later and added a few dessert spoons of beef gravy powder to boiling water and cornflour slurry to thicken sauce. Put on high, uncovered and left for an hour to thicken sauce. Meanwhile I cooked potatoes and mashed them, steamed carrots, peas and broccoli. Very yummy meal, yields lots of sauce ?

  7. Great dish! I didn’t have garlic powder so substituted with chopped large garlic clove. Cooked on low for 8 hours while we were at work. At the end I added tin diced tomatoes, gravy powder and corn flour slurry and turned on high to thicken the sauce. Family loved it.

  8. These were so delicious! I used ready made rissoles from the supermarket and served with mash and veggies. I can’t wait to make it again!

  9. Absolutely beautiful meal, I didn’t change anything. Served the rissoles with potato mash, baked pumpkin and veggies. I’m sure I will be making this again very soon ?.

    Made my own meatballs for this. The Grandchildren came back for more. Another recipe that will become a firm favourite.

    Tried this one for the first time and it was a hit. Lots of flavour but the only thing I will be doing differently next time is frying off the rissoles first as we weren’t a fan of the texture but other than that it was absolutely delicious

    Very tasty ?
    First time cooking meatballs in the sc, soo succulent! I made my own meatballs, just with mince, egg, thyme, half an onion and garlic. Threw them in, then threw in the sauce! Another easy dinner to add to the list ?
