So it’s Monday….and I’m posting a meatball recipe… Can this mean what you think it means? Yes my friends, yes it does! Meatball Mondays are back!!! Woot! Bring on the confetti – Monday’s are fun again!!!
It’s been awhile since Meatball Mondays were a regular thing here on IBIH, but starting this week I will again be posting a new low carb meatball recipe each Monday. I may miss a week here or there due to scheduling issues, but I’m committing to it anyway because I have a looooooong list of meatball concepts to bring to life and I can’t wait to get started!!
This week’s meatball recipe is based on a Moroccan spice blend called Harissa. You can purchase it in a paste, but I used a dry spice blend like this one. Harissa is a little spicy and has a unique flavor that lends itself really well to these meatballs! I used the Harissa spice in the meat blend as well as in the sauce for continuity.
Speaking of the sauce, I’d eat my own flip flops if they had this sauce on them! It’s reminiscent of ketchup in the sense that it has a nice tang from the vinegar, but it also has a spicy sweet thing going on that makes it really addictive. I might actually make this sauce in some larger quantities and try canning it, because it makes an amazing condiment on pretty much anything – all meats for sure, even fish, shrimp, veggies – or to serve on a cheese plate. Seriously, this stuff is YUMMAY! Can’t wait for you guys to try it and report back!Print
So now that Meatball Mondays are back – I’d love to hear what you guys would like to see made into a meatball recipe! Post your ideas in the comments and I’ll add your concepts to my list!
