I did change this recipe up a bit, but it was very good! I used all the spices you listed in the recipe, but also added a little bit of cumin seed pepper flakes, and cinnamon (I love that combination in meatballs), and cooked everything on the stovetop. All in all, a very nice weekday recipe, thanks for posting! Made for January NA*ME Tag.
