I have had some ground lamb hanging around in my freezer for a few weeks. Figured it was about time to use it. We love lamb in this house and generally use ground lamb for mousaka but I decided to try something different yesterday. The lamb meat balls were a hit with the sauce not to mention Henien’s unbelievably good broccoli salad. Someday I need to figure what the sauce is in the salad. The combination of broccoli, bacon, cashews, raisins and onions is a taste from heaven. Then combine that with the recipe from Chow.com makes a wonderfully quick meal in under 30 minutes.

Lamb Meatballs with Lemon-Cumin Sauce


For the meatballs:

For the yogurt:

  • 7 ounces whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Zest of 1 medium lemon, minced
  1. Heat the oven to 375°F and arrange a rack in the middle.
  2. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands.
  3. Form into 30 balls (about 2 teaspoons each) and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake until meatballs are no longer pink in the middle, about 15 minutes.
