Soutzoukakia (Classic Greek meatballs) in tomato sauce

Try this and let me know what you think

kefi Chef

Soutzoukakia are a classic appetizer or as they say in Greek meze. I’ve been making a version of this for over 20 years and there’s always a chance to get creative. You can choose to substitute veal, venison, ground turkey or even pork. Change up the herbs to parsley or dill instead of mint, add in chilli flakes or cayenne for spice. Double the recipe and use a large crock pot for a big party. You could substitute the cheese to any hard to semi-hard cheese like pecorino, Parmesan, Gruyere, or Romano.

I like to serve this with crusty bread or pita but there are many options as they can be served over rice or pasta, with salad or a side dish with roasted vegetables.

250 gr. ground beef
400 gr. ground lamb
