- 1 minced Onion, minced
- 0,5 bunch of Fresh parsley or mint, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of Ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of Allspico
- Salt and pepper, to season
- 1/4 cup of Oil
Place the ground beef or lamb, onion, herbs, spices, salt and pepper in a large bowl and knead together well. Wrap in plastic and chill for 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to mingle and make the meat easier to handle.
Form the meat mixture into balls, patties or ovals the size of a small egg.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium flame and, working in batches, sauté the meatballs until browned on all sides and cooked through. Browned meatballs can also be finished in a 350ºF oven.
Serve as is or in pita bread as a sandwich.
