Leek Meatballs


Leek meatballs are among all of the meatballs recipes I tried my favorite. I never knew that leeks and ground beef would have such an amazing taste when they are combined. I find this recipe easy to make and very tasty. It definitely became one of those recipes you wish you could make over and over.

1 pound of ground beef

2 medium leeks trimmed and clean

1/2 cup of breadcrumbs

salt pepper

1 large onion diced in small

1 egg

olive oil

all spice, ground cloves

Boil the leeks for about 30min. Once they cool down, process the leeks in a food processor until well chopped but not too much. In a large bowl, mix the leeks, beef, bread crumbs, egg and the spices. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes up to an hour. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large pan, sear the meatballs on both sides until they become golden brown.

In a large pot, heat up the oil and add the onions until they become translucent. Add the meatballs and cover with a little bit of water, cook for about 30min.

You can serve those meatballs with a side of couscous or fresh greens.
