Spicy Lamb Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

March/April 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (26 votes)

These succulent meatballs can be served on little plates with plenty of bread for sopping up the rich tomato sauce or simply with toothpicks (and a napkin!). They are best served warm.

Great mild lamb flavor

I made these without the sauce so there were pretty mild. I would have upped the spices and maybe added some heat since I served them with tzatziki sauce. But they had good flavor. My husband who doesn't love lamb really liked these so they work for a variety of palates.
I like my meatballs browned so I did finish them in a pan with a little olive oil which probably eliminated the "healthy" factor!

good flavor, moist, healthy

Awesome

These were delicious. They went over really well at our New Year's get together. I thought they had just enough heat - I wouldn't have added any more cayenne. They were easy to prepare and tasted really fresh and delicious. The fresh mint was a really great addition. My husband is excited to have them leftover as meatball sandwiches. They were just awesome!

These are very good, although I would add another 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to give it a little more zip.
