Whether you're looking for a new twist on traditional meatballs or are just in the mood for something different, these tender bites of seasoned ground lamb are the perfect option.

With a harmonious blend of herbs and spices, these meatballs are bursting with savoury flavours that will leave you wanting more. So let's get down to it:


Minced lamb

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

Finely chopped coriander leaves

Two cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

One egg, beaten

Cooking oil


In a large mixing bowl, combine ground lamb, breadcrumbs, coriander leaves, garlic, dried oregano, ground cumin, salt, black pepper, and beaten egg. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.

Shape the mixture into small balls. Heat a drizzle of cooking oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the meatballs to the skillet, spacing them out evenly. If necessary, cook them in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.

Cook the meatballs for about 8-10 minutes, turning them occasionally to brown all sides. They should be cooked through and nicely browned on the outside.

Once cooked, remove the meatballs from the skillet and let them rest on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.

Garnish your lamb meatballs with some coriander leaves and serve with your favourite sauce. Enjoy!
