Moroccan Spiced Lamb Meatballs

Posted by in Shared Member Recipes

Time: 1 1/4 hours. Meatballs are easy to make, and they’re a good way to get everyone at the party involved in the cooking. Dan Petrie peps up this familiar food with fresh ginger along with the fragrant Moroccan spice blend ras el hanout. A razor-sharp grater, such as a Microplane, makes quick work of finely shredding ginger and garlic. If you don’t have one, simply mince those seasonings into a paste. Wine Pairing: Etude Pinot Noir 2006 (Carneros).

The sauce made from the drippings begs for polenta or potatoes.
