Turkish Meatballs

I made Turkish Meatballs last week, easy to make and very tasty. Made with the meatball spice I got in the bazaar -

Köfte Spice (Meatball Spice)


This is a spice mix composed of coriander, black pepper, cloves, bay leaves and wild thyme. - So you can make your own LOL


  • one pack of lean beef mince (ground chuck)
  • one small onion chopped
  • 1/2 a bunch of parsley chopped
  • one egg
  • 2 slices of bread crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons of meatball spice
  • a little salt
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • one can of chopped tomatoes

  1. mix all of the ingredients together except the can of tomatoes
  2. heat some olive oil in a thick bottomed pan then add the meatballs and slowly cook for 10 minutes stirring all the time to brown evenly
  3. then add the tomatoes and reduce down to a simmer for 20-30 minutes
In Turkey it was served with mashed potatoes but we ate ours with rice and broccoli.

Later this week I will share a salad recipe with the sumac spice mix and allow you to leave comments to win a packet of sumac and meatball spice in the giveaway!- stay tuned.
