3 years ago , Nicole and I bought this ginormous greek cookbook for my mom for Christmas.  Probably the day after, Mike STOLE the cookbook , and never gave it back since!   He actually referred to it as HIS cookbook a couple weeks ago!!  Anyways, this book , Vefa’s Kitchen is FABULOUS, and we have had nothing but awesome recipes out of it…These meatballs are no exception!



2 medium onions, sliced

1 cup panko bread crums

4 tablespoons red wine

1lb ground lamb

4 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 egg lightly beaten


For the sauce:

2 egg yolks

1 cup greek yogurt

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Preheat oven to 350, and brush ovenproof dish with oil.  In a saute pan, sautee onion until it gets a nice golden brown color.  Let cool, add to bowl with breadcrumbs, wine, lamb, parsley, vinegar, egg, and salt and pepper.  Shape into meatballs.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, prepare yogurt sauce.  Lightly beat the egg yolks in a bowl, then beat in yogurt and vinegar until smooth.  Spoon sauce over meatballs, and back for 20 minutes longer.
