Moroccan meatballs

I can litteraly make those with my eyes closed. My mother gave me this recipe a long time ago and whenever I feel like having a real moroccan dish I make it. It’s simple, easy and full of flavors!

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup unflavored breadcrumbs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of cumin
  • 1 tbsp of clove
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon 
  • 1 tbsp of nutmeg 
  • 1 tbsp of all spice 

For the tomato sauce:

  • 1 medium onion sliced 
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes 
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika 

In a food processor, grind the potato, onion and parsley. In a large bowl, mix together the ground meat, breadcrumbs, olive oil, spices and the onion potato mixture. Mix very well. Cover the bowl and let it rest in the fridge for about 30minutes. 

In the meantime, prepare the tomato sauce: in a large pan, heat up 1 tbps of olive oil. Add the onions and sauteed for about 3-4 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and the spices; mix very well. 

Form small bowls with the meat and add them to the pan. Cover and cook on medium for about 20 minutes.
