lamb meatballs  from real simple october 2010

1lb ground lamb

1/4 cup dried apricots, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 small red onion, finely chopped

salt and pepper

heat broiler.in a medium bowl, combine the lamb, apricots, coriander, chopped onion, 1/2 teaspoon slat and 1/4 teaspo0n pepper. form 1.5 inch balls (about 20 says the recipe, I made 28!) and place on a broiler proof baking sheet. broil until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes (I flipped half way through).

the recipe has you also prepare couscous to serve the meatballs over and a small salad of cucumbers, tomatoes, feta and sliced red onion with a simple olive oil and lemon juice dressing.  I served it over israeli couscous instead, mixed with some cucumber, lemon and feta. Also some tzatziki sauce on the side for dipping.

  1. This sounds REALLY great. I wouldn’t have usually added dried fruit to meatballs, but it sounds great!

    • I was SO skeptical of the dried apricot! My husband didn’t want me to put it in, but I did. We were pleasantly surprised it tasted SO great!!
