Lamb is one of the most distinct meats for me, flavor wise, and love to get my hands on it when I can. Of course it’s expensive, so it’s a once in a while type of love affair.

Today, we’re going to make some Moroccan Meatballs – the flavors of the Mediterranean paired with the fresh mint, cilantro, and thyme that are all so prevalent in Moroccan cooking. If you’ve had lamb at a Mediterranean or even middle eastern restaurant, you’ll know exactly what this tastes like. It tastes just like they’d make it – authentic, clean flavors, and marry well with one another. The mint, cumin, thyme, and oregano all play off of each other as you take a bite and enjoy the flavors.

The yogurt sauce is very thick, just what you’d expect if you used real Greek yogurt. Cumin and lemon create an aromatic flavor that bursts through the rich and deep flavors of the lamb – giving you a perfect appetizer or a perfect dinner with a salad on the side. Feel free to combine the runoff fat from the meatballs into the sauce. It tints the sauce a slightly yellow color, but it adds so many more fats and packs on to the flavor that runs through the entire dish.
