Middle Eastern Cumin Meatballs

Middle Eastern Cumin Meatballs
  • Meatballs:
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Tomato Sauce:
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine the ground beef, egg, garlic, bread crumbs, cumin, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until well mixed. Roll the mixture into egg-sized balls, and set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs; cook until firm, and browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove meatballs from the skillet and pour out the fat.
  3. Bring the water to a boil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the tomato paste, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Add the cooked meatballs, and simmer in the tomato sauce for 5 to 10 minutes until completely cooked.
