Beef Greek Meatballs (Keftdes) Recipe


Beef Greek Meatballs (Keftdes)

3 slices white bread, crusts removed
1 pound minced beef or lamb
1 large egg
1 large onion, grated
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 small bunch flat leaf parsley, fine chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
mint, chopped
sunflower oil for frying

Soak bread in water and squeeze it dry. Mix all ingredients except flour and sunflower oil together and work together with your hands for about 5 minutes until it has a soft, dough-like consistency.

With wet hands, form mixture into walnut sized balls then flatten them slightly.

Flour keftedes twice, so as to get a good crust. Heat oil in a large frying pan until it sizzles.

Fry keftedes for 5-6 minutes, do not overcrowd pan. Turn them once so they are crisp and brown. Drain and serve hot.
