Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs good-quality red harissa paste*
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 2 x 400g cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 1/4 cups (310ml) beef stock
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 2 tbs chopped coriander, plus extra sprigs to serve
  • 100g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 4 eggs
  • Sliced grilled Turkish bread, to serve

Method

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add half the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add half the garlic and 1 tablespoon harissa paste and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Add cinnamon, tomato and stock, stir to combine and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine mince, coriander, breadcrumbs and remaining onion, garlic and 1 tablespoon harissa in a bowl. Season then form tablespoonfuls of lamb mixture into walnut-sized balls. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Heat 1 tablespoon oil overt medium heat and cook half the meatballs for 3-4 minutes, turning, until golden all over and almost cooked. Drain on paper towel. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and meatballs.
  5. Divide meatballs among 4 x 2-cup (500ml) ovenproof dishes or place in a 1.5L-capacity baking dish, then pour over the hot tomato sauce. Form a well in the centre of each dish and crack an egg into it. If using a large dish, make 4 wells in the tomato mixture. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the eggwhites are just cooked, but the yolks are still runny.
  6. Served with sliced grilled Turkish bread.

  • It looks inspiring. I would avoid adding the harissa though, because I don’t like spicy food.

  • Nice ! We make something like this in a vegetarian version. It’s quite easy btw to make the Harissa yourself (4 long fresh red chillies, 2 garlic cloves, crushed,1 teaspoon salt,1 teaspoon ground cumin,1 teaspoon ground coriander,1 tablespoon olive oil).
