MEATBALLS WITH POLENTA, VEGGIES & SPICES
6 stalks coriander
3 tbsp basil pesto
2 tbsp basil
2 tbsp zataar
2 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp black pepper
3 cups water
1 cup sweet peppers
1 cup of polenta
2 lbs lean ground beef
In a bowl, add all these deliciously fresh ingredients together starting with the meat and adding the warm polenta and with your hands mix it all together until well blended then form into balls and place on serving dish. By the way dogs can eat them raw like this if they prefer. But for us place in coconut oil in pan on stovetop until everything cooks throughout and to brown, we then put the pan right into the oven at 325 degrees for it’s final 10 minutes of cooking and presto, ready to serve! Put dog’s portion into a bowl and for you, place on top of organic greens along with some pesto sauce and dig in! Hope you will love it as much as we did !
*The Middle-Eastern spice blend called za’atar ingredients are: sesame seeds, ground sumac, and dried za’atar (an herb with a savory-thyme-oregano flavor). You can buy za’atar blends in Middle-Eastern markets, but you can also make it at home. In the blend shown above, thyme and oregano or marjoram stand-in for the za’atar herb, which is rarely available in the United States. To make about 1/2 cup of za’atar, put 3 Tbs. dried thyme, 1 Tbs. lightly toasted sesame seeds, 1 Tbs. ground sumac, 1/2 tsp. dried oregano or marjoram, and 1/4 tsp. kosher salt in a spice grinder. Pulse a few times to mix and break up some of the seeds—there should still be many whole seeds visible. Store in a cool, dark place for up to six months. If sumac is unavailable, substitute 2 Tbs. dried lemon peel.
