2 lbs lamb meat
1 cup panko crumbs
1/3 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tbsp mint
2 tbsp dill
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp worcheshire
juice of half a lime
Salt and pepper
So get the lamb meat out of the package. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
Add the panko after you have mixed the spices etc. Mix the meat and panko until a good consistency.
After you have mixed, make them into golf sized meatballs. Notice that the rack is placed on top of a cookie sheet. Place the Greek Meatballs into the oven. Allow them to cook for about 30 to 45 minutes.
While that is cooking, start working on the tzatziki sauce:
1 cup greek yogurt
2 small seedless cucumbers
1/2 tsp dill
1/2 tsp mint
While that is cooking, place the yogurt into a bowl. Peel the skin off of the cucumbers. Shred the cucumbers Place into a colander. Salt the cucumber. Apparently if you salt it, the water from the cucumber will drain out.
Mince the dill and mint and then add the cucumber.
Squeeze the juice out of half a lemon atop the yogurt. Mix with the spoon and place into the refrigerator to chill. This allows the spices to meld with the yogurt.
I am enjoying the meatballs with some couscous and pita bread. I am very selective in my Greek food, but this was really good!
