Peppery Greek Beef Meatballs

402

These aren't burgers, but rather well-rounded distant cousins. This recipe is based on a Greek flavor profile. These meatballs are so flavor-packed.

You can serve them in a gravy made with their juices or with your choice of marinara sauce, mushroom pan gravy, or even cucumber raita. Try serving these on a nest of warm orzo pasta with some extra-virgin olive oil. You can add a teaspoon of cumin and ground coriander for more flavorful and spiced meatballs. Ground lamb is also a perfect substitute for ground beef for a deeper flavor and enhanced umami.
