A while ago I had the pleasure of watching the Three Greek Sisters create these Greek meatballs. They just made it look so easy and the aroma while they were cooking was sheer heaven. The friend I was with and I both agreed that this was a must try recipe and we've now added this recipe to our regular repetoire of "good things".
Follow the recipe to a "T" and you'll never be sorry with these entirely delicious and soft meatballs. I've never used mint in a meatball recipe before but now I feel like "how can you make them without it".
1 lb. (500 g) ground beef, extra lean
1/2 yellow onion, minced
1/2 cup each fresh parsley and mint, chopped
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp oregano, dried
1/2 tsp salt Pepper, as desired
Combine ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly with hands. Let mixture sit in refrigerator for at least an hour. Shape meat into bite-sized balls and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Place in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until brown and cooked through.
I didn't serve Tzatziki sauce but here's a great recipe from Jerry's Thoughts, Musings and Rants and lower fat too.
