With all the beef and pork meatballs available, it's easy to forget about the less popular, but equally as delicious, proteins. Lamb is a leaner and more nutritious meat than cow, and is a staple of Greek cuisine. These lamb meatballs are filled with spices and served alongside a creamy and tangy yogurt tzatziki sauce. It's the perfect balance of flavors in one bite.
Although Americans traditionally serve meatballs with pasta, these lamb delights are best served on their own or served as a sandwich in pita bread. Water is added to help steam the meat, making the meatballs fluffier. If you prefer meatballs that are more dense, skip this ingredient. This recipe works well for those trying to expand their culinary palate, and a delicious way to prepare friends and family a delicious Mediterranean dinner without breaking the bank.
