Australian Lamb Kefta Meatballs In Spicy Tomato Sauce

Australian-Meatballs-011312

Why Kosher Australian lamb? It’s lean, tender, and low in cholesterol—with 20 percent less fat than American lamb. In fact, half the fat is mono-unsaturated, the same type of fatty acids found in olive oil. Another plus: Australian lamb is all natural, coming from free-range lambs and produced with no artificial additives. Check with your local kosher butcher for availability.

Ingredients

Meatballs:

● 1 pound ground Australian lamb ● 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion ● 2 slices fresh white bread, crushed into soft crumbs (by hand or in a food processor; if using dry breadcrumbs, use ½ cup) ● 1 whole egg ● 1 teaspoon minced garlic ● ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley ● ¾ teaspoon ground cumin ● ¾ teaspoon turmeric ● ½ teaspoon minced fresh ginger root ● ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom ● 3 tablespoons water ● ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro ● ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper ● 3 tablespoons olive oil for frying

Sauce: ● 3 cups tomato sauce ● ½ cup chopped yellow onion ● 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes ● 1 teaspoon cumin ● 1/8 cup distilled white vinegar ● 2 tablespoons crushed fresh garlic ● ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon ● 3 saffron threads ● ¼ cup chopped cilantro

 

Directions Combine garlic, onions, parsley, cumin, paprika, ginger, cardamom, cilantro, pepper, fresh bread crumbs, eggs, and water in a large bowl.

Blend Australian ground lamb into mixture. Let rest about 2 hours in refrigerator. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Shape meat mixture into balls about 1” in diameter. Fry meatballs in batches. When the meatballs are very brown and slightly crisp, remove from heat and drain on a paper towel.

In a medium pot over moderate heat, sauté chopped onions and garlic for 5 to 7 minutes, until onion bits are soft. Add tomato sauce, red pepper flakes, vinegar, cumin, cinnamon, and saffron. Bring to a simmer and add meatballs. Cook for about 15 minutes. Stir in chopped cilantro and add salt and pepper to taste.

Yield: 6 servings
