This Moroccan Meatballs recipe is a favourite of ours on Gourmet Guys and we felt that we should be sharing it with you.
This is a mouth watering dish of note, everybody who watches this video will be salivating at the mouth. Meatballs have never looked as good as this before and I doubt they ever will. Rick Stein has such a calming and authoritative tone about him too, some of our tweeps refer to him as Uncle Rick and we have taken to labelling him that too. I enjoy watching him cook far more than Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver, he soothes the soul while his recipes soothe the belly.
Naturally for the best results with this Kefta Mkaouara recipe a Tagine will be useful, if not a regular stove top casserole dish with a lid will do the job just fine.
A Tagine is a North African earthenware pot and gives it’s name to the dishes that are cooked in it. These are slow cooked stews which are braised at low temperatures resulting in very tender meat. The conical lid aids convection and enhances the cooking process. You can find more user friendly ceramic ones nowadays which will produce the same results.
A tip for the novice cooks out there, crack the eggs into a separate bowl first. You don’t want to be fishing for egg shells at that late stage of the game, it will only damper the experience.
Morocco here I come!
