Meatball is one of the traditional culinary culture of Turkish cuisine. Being Turkish, I cannot deny how important grilling and meat in our culture. This “Akcaabat” meatball is one of the famous type of meatball recipes. These small meatballs are both healthy and delicious, because they are cooked with spices. They are cooked on the grill and served hot. I made these balls for my friends yesterday and they loved them. So, I thought that I should share the recipe. Also, I strongly recommend that you should sprinkle some oregano and chili pepper on meatballs. You can serve them with grilled tomato, green pepper, onion, eggplant, and mushroom. Although they are called as a meat”ball”, Turkish meatballs’ shape are not like a ball. LOL!! Here is the simple recipe that you can easily prepare in just minutes. 😉
- 1pound Lamb, minced, preferably with some fat
- 1 Tsp salt
- 1 Tsp black pepper
- 1-1/2 minced garlic
- 75gr crushed rusk
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients and then form into round, slightly flat 2-inch meatballs and place onto the grill.
