This is the first recipe that I am making for my the Taste&Create event that I host every month. I have 2 partners, so another post will be coming soon.
When I was randomly paired with Ivy from Kopiaste I was REALLY excited – I love Greek food…at least what little I have tried. So, when I saw her post for Keftedes, I was really excited to try something quite different from the daily meatballs and tomato sauce bit.
These this dish grows on you. Since there are only 2 of us, it took us a few days of left overs to finish this off, and each day they tasted better and better. On the third day (and last day) they tasted the best.
To be honest, the flavors are subtle and intense, but not where I would go with this recipe if I were to make it again. However, the bursts of fresh pomegranate kernels was so delicious and very refreshing with each bite of warm meat!
The meatballs were absolutely delicious, but if I were to make this again, I would change the sauce by:
-use white wine instead of red wine (maybe 2 cups instead of 1)
-use cumin (maybe 1 teaspoon’s worth) instead of Nutmeg
-leav out the milk
My son loved them just the way they were. He ate them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner
Here’s a link to Ivy’s Meatballs in Pomegranate sauce recipe.
I will definitely be back to her blog to try out more!
