How to Make it

  1. Make the meat balls: Cut the fat out of the meat and set it away – if you dont like it. Enter 250 gr minced meat into the blender. Add 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, then season it until well blended. Add ice cubes and then blend again until completely smooth. Insert the meat into a large bowl, add 2 eggs. Stir it. Add tapioca flour 200gr (as adhesive). Stir well.  
  2. Prepare 2 liters of water in a large pot. Let it boil and then lower the heat. Take a small amount of meat mixture and put it on your palms, then make small balls. Diameter of 1 cm small. Put all the balls into the hot water, wait until they float. Drain and then put them back into the cold water for 5 minutes, drain again. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Place the pie pastry into a mould, bake it for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Make the Filling/Chügelipastete: Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Then sautee garlic & onion until they turn golden brown. Then add champignon, meat balls & spring onion. Stir well for 10 minutes.
  5. Add half of beef broth, white wine and stir for 5 minutes. Then add milk & flour, let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  6. Add the other half of beef broth & cheese. Stir well until the sauce is getting a little bit thicker. Set aside.
  7. Take the baked pastry pie from the oven. Put a full serving spoon of chügelipastete on the plate. Then cover it with pastry pie on top. Serve immediately.
