- 1 lb ground lamb
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 large garlic clove
- 1 small yellow onion
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Prepare your onion and garlic, by mincing the garlic and dicing the onion into small pieces.
Combine the ground lamb, egg, breadcrumbs, minced garlic, diced onion, and spices in a large bowl and mix until all ingredients are well combined.
Using a spoon or mini ice cream scoop, scoop out about 1 oz of the lamb mixture into the palms of your hands and roll into smooth balls. Wet your hands to prevent the meat from sticking to your palms.
Heat a few tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan set over medium-high heat.
Once the oil is shimmering, add your meatballs and cook until the interior reaches about 145°F. Turn every few minutes to ensure all sides get nicely browned. Do not overcook or they will be dry.
Remove and strain excess oil on a wire rack or paper towels.
Serve with pita bread, tzatziki sauce, or any sauce you prefer for drizzling.
We recommend serving with a glass of Cabernet Franc and enjoy!
