A nice throw-together meatball that is insanely delicious. No exact recipe folks- I was just having fun and tossing it all in! Using what's in the fridge! —olive

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound dark ground turkey meat (or lamb)
  • few handfuls panko breadcrumbs
  • few splashes Worcestershire
  • roughly 1/c cup or so of parsley pistou (extra virgin olive oil, parsley, garlic, lemon zest-blitzed)
  • few handfuls of red peppers and chilies, see below for example
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup ground tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  1. Mix together all ingredients listed above-(except for tomatoes, wine, and stock) for the spices, I used Aleppo pepper, Maras red pepper, and Berbere pepper (all bought at the Spanish Table) but feel free to mix it up with whatever you have on hand. Smoky Paprika, crushed red chilies, cayenne, and so on...
  2. Sear rolled meatballs on all sides until nice and browned. Remove to a plate.
  3. Add wine, stock, and tomatoes to pan and scrape up fond from bottom. Let reduce a bit adding a few more shakes of those exotic spices and then add meatballs back in. Lid on. Cook until cooked through and sauce is somewhat reduced and thickened.
  4. Serve with charred flatbread, jazzed up herbed-garlicky yogurt, and fresh cilantro.
