In this video I demonstrate how to cook English beef rissoles. English rissoles were traditionally made from the leftovers of the Sunday roast dinner. I have used beef in this recipe but any leftover meat can be used.
Rissoles have a great flavour, well beyond the simplicity of their humble ingredients. I use beef here but you can use any meat leftovers you have to hand. They may be a hard times recipe, but they are very tasty and satisfying 😋
Rissoles were very popular during wartime rationing in the UK.
330g cooked meat i.e. beef/lamb/chicken/turkey or venison.

English rissoles are not to be confused with Australian rissoles, which are usually made with fresh minced beef, although there are some similarities and a common ancestry.
