Nutritional values

Beefsteak mince contains plenty of niacin, vitamin B12, zinc and iron, but is very low in fat compared to normal minced meat; the diced peppers in the minced meat dough additionally reduce the calorie balance. Chili and garlic ensure full flavour and well-functioning blood vessels.

Do you like lamb? Then try a mixture of one half beefsteak and one half minced lamb. The rolls are then a bit fatter, but still lower in calories than with pure minced lamb.
