Special Equipment Needed

Serving Suggestion

Serve with your favorite steamed vegetable to round out the meal.

Purchasing Ground Lamb

When purchasing ground lamb, always check the label to ensure that the meat has been ground on the day of purchase. If you can't use the meat immediately, wrap it tightly and freeze until ready to use. For best quality, use within 2 months.


Use a small ice cream scoop with a release mechanism to easily shape meat mixture into balls. The scoops lets you shape the meatballs without using your hands so there's less chance of spreading bacteria from the raw meat around your kitchen.

How to Make Sauce Thicker

Remove meatballs from pan and keep warm. Bring sauce to a boil until it reaches desired consistency.
