    French Onion Aussie Lamb Meatballs

    From our mate Ally Phillips of Ally's Kitchen: Flavorful Aussie lamb meatballs with an Italian flair, simply served alongside sautéed garbanzo beans seasoned with salt, pepper, harissa and ground cumin then placed over a mound of fresh European greens.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 5 minutes
        •    Cook time: 25 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

        •    1 lb. lamb, ground, grassfed and/or organic
        •    ½ cup French Onion dip
        •    ½ cup parmesan, grated
        •    2 eggs, beaten
        •    1 ½ tsp. Garlic Herb Seasoning Mixture
        •    1 tsp. dried mint
        •    1 tsp. sea salt
        •    ½ tsp. dried rosemary
        •    ½ tsp. red chili flakes
        •    ¾ cup bread crumbs
        •    ½ cup flat parsley, fresh, packed and finely chopped
        •    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
        •    1 (28 oz.) can peeled tomatoes + 1 cup water
        •    1/2 cup shaved parmesan

    For the side dish:

        •    4-5 cups fresh greens, mixture of arugula, spinach, baby kale, etc.
        •    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
        •    2 (14.5 oz.) cans garbanzo beans, drained
        •    2 tsp. harissa
        •    1 tsp. ground cumin
        •    1/2 tsp. salt

    Method

    1. In a large mixing bowl, put the lamb, French onion dip, parmesan, eggs, garlic herb seasoning, mint, salt, rosemary and chili flakes. Blend together really well combining all the ingredients into a thick meat mixture.

    2. Add the bread crumbs and parsley and blend together. Don't overwork the mixture, just enough to incorporate all ingredients. The mixture is now ready for rolling into meatballs.

    3. Pinch about two heaping tablespoons and roll in to a meatball. Repeat until all the meat is rolled into meatballs. There should be about 10 to 12 meatballs. Of course, the size of your meatballs will determine the total number you get from the mixture.

    4. Put a Dutch oven (medium size) on a medium blaze. Let it get hot. Add the olive oil. Add five to six meatballs and brown on all sides. Use tongs and remove these meatballs to a bowl. Add the remaining meatballs and brown. Then return the first batch of browned meatballs to the pot.

    5. Cover the meatballs with the tomatoes and water. Cover with a lid. Cook for thirty minutes on medium stirring occasionally.

    6. Reduce heat to low and simmer until ready to serve. The tomatoes will cook down and become a ‘marinara’ type sauce consistency. Stir occasionally.

    7. While the meatballs are cooking, prepare the garbanzo beans. Heat a medium skillet on medium heat. Add the olive oil, beans, harissa and cumin. Toss and blend well. Cook about 7-10 minutes over medium low heat.

    8. When serving, put some of the greens on the plate, top with some of the beans and several of the meatballs and sauce.

      French Onion Soup Meatballs

      This French Onion Soup Meatballs = the best combination ever. This sauce is SO GOOD… it’s really hard to resist grabbing a spoon and slurping all of it up… it makes these meatballs so flavorful. Of all the meatballs recipes I’ve made, these might win. Rich, caramelized onions add so much flavor to any dish, and this one is no exception. I’ve become quite good at cooking perfectly caramelized onions at this point. I’m kinda weird and find it pretty entertaining to watch those onions completely change form. Once you master the process you’ll see what a great addition caramelized onions are not only to soups and meatballs, but to burgers, sandwiches, hot dips, cold dips and more.

      These meatballs are doused in rich caramelized onion sauce and topped with hot, melted cheese. They'll be the best meatballs you've ever had

      Prep Time

          •    Prep time: 15 minutes
          •    Cook time: 50 minutes
          •    Yield: Serves 25

      Ingredients

      Caramelized Onions:

          •   1 very large yellow onion sliced into thin strings
          •   4 tbsps butter
          •   1 tsp olive oil
          •   1/2 tsp thyme
          •   1 tsp salt
          •   1 tsp sugar
          •   1/2 tsp "Better than Boullion" mixed with 1/4 cup water **
          •   1/4 cup cabernet wine Can sub Merlot

      Meatballs:

          •   1.5 pounds ground beef
          •   1 slice white bread soaked in milk
          •   1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
          •   1 teaspoon parsley
          •   Light sprinkle of salt/pepper
          •   1 large egg
          •   4 thin slices provolone or mozzarella cheese grated cheese is okay too

      Sauce:

          •   2 cups water
          •   1 packet beefy onion dry soup mix from a 2.2 oz. box
          •   1/2 teaspoon chicken "Better than Boullion" optional
          •   1/4 cup cabernet wine
          •   2 tablespoons cornstarch

      Method

      1. In a large pot, caramelize the onions.
      2. Add the thyme, salt, bullion/water, and wine. Cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes.
      3. In a large bowl, mix together the milk soaked, bread, panko, parsley, salt/pepper, and egg in a bowl until well combined.
      4. Add the meat and mix thoroughly with your hands. Roll into small meatballs and add to the pan with the onions, brown on each side, reduce heat if they're cooking too fast and add additional oil if necessary.
      5. Preheat oven to 370 degrees.
      6. Prepare the sauce by combining all of the ingredients and heating in a saucepan for 10 minutes. (I let the meatballs soak in this sauce overnight before cooking them in the oven, this can enrich the flavor)
      7. Place the meatballs, onion mixture, and sauce in a baking dish or cast iron skillet. Top with provolone or mozzarella cheese and cook for 20 minutes, (check on it after 15.) Once cheese is hot and bubbly, remove, and top with thyme or parsley.
