What Makes The Mediterranean Meatball So Appetizing

post image

Mediterranean meatball loaded with classic Greek spices and herbs, these tender, beefy Mediterranean meatballs with sour cream don’t skimp on flavor. Quick easy and refreshing change of pace, this beef meatball recipe deserves a spot on your weekly meal plan. We like to use a classic “80/20” ground beef mixture for meatballs, which means 80 percent lean beef to 20 percent beef fat. Having some fat in the mix ensures that your meatballs stay nice and moist.

Mediterranean Meatball

We love Greek food, and we’ve added our entire favorites classically- Greek herbs and spices to this meatball recipe. You can serve these with warm pita bread to really have that overall Mediterranean or Greek flavor. The soft warm pita bread would be perfect for mopping up all of that spices and sauces.

Meatballs are one of my favorite meals to have on hand. We can eat them for dinner one night and have leftovers for lunch the following day. These Mediterranean meatballs packed with oregano, lemon juice, and fresh mint. I like to have them in a pita sandwich with spinach, tomatoes, feta, and a quick dill Greek yogurt dip. The meatball sandwich can be eaten hot or cold, making them perfect for packed lunches.
