Meatballs
(Keftedes)
What You Need:
  • 1 pound onions, grated
  • 1 tablespoon plus ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon vinegar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint (optional)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart com or vegetable oil for deep-frying

  • How To Cook:
    1. Add 1 tablespoon salt to grated onions and squeeze together. Put this pulp in a cheesecloth bag or strainer and let cold water run through it for 2 minutes.

    2. Squeeze the water from the pulp and place pulp in a bowl. Add ground beef, salt, pepper, oregano, breadcrumbs, vinegar, water, and mint.

    3. Put flour on a sheet of wax paper. Take a tablespoonful of meat mixture and drop on the flour. Roll meat in flour into a ball.

    4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large frying pan. Fry meatballs until golden brown. Serve warm or cold, accompanied with a green salad.

    NOTE:
        This recipe can be served as an appetizer. Use 1 teaspoon rather than 1 tablespoon of meat per ball. Your yield will be about 48 balls.
     
    To Make: about 24 balls
