Meatballs are such a good vessel to take on any flavors you enjoy. These meatballs hail from Greece.
I am writing this post following a day on the road. My wife and I went to Southeast Michigan to support our son as he competed in STEELHEAD 70.3 HALF IRONMAN. Quite an accomplishment. When my wife and I first met, a lot of our dates were swimming and running. We did a few triathalons but never one of this distance.
We were both stir crazy and tired haven’t spent that much time in the car. So the dish I intended to create, will have to wait. We picked up sushi so I would not have to do any work. We ate the sushi in like five minutes.
What makes these Greek Meatballs in a Greek Tomato Sauce so good is the taste of the meatballs and the tomato sauce. One of the components that I like so much about this dish is the GREEK TOMATO SAUCE. The oregano, cinnamon and allspice add such unique flavors. The addition of dill is also a great undertone in this sauce.
These meatballs are packed with great spices and fresh herbs. I have picked up some pretty cool spices along the way. In these meatballs, I used Mediterranean Sea Salt and Turkish oregano. I also used fresh dill and fresh parsley. Natural ingredients add so much. These meatballs may look simple but they are packed with flavors and the key to a tasty dish.
