Lamb Meatballs with Spicy Tomato Cream Sauce

Lamb Meatballs with Spicy Tomato Cream Sauce created by Jonathan Melendez

These flavorful meatballs are cooked with a spicy tomato cream sauce. It has a fairly nice kick to it without being over-spicy. Delicious served over rice. Would go well with a nice green veggie on the side! Reminds me of Swedish Meatballs, only better!

    The lamb I buy comes in 1 lb. packages. If I double the meatball recipe, do I also need to double the sauce? If seems like there might be enough sauce without doubling it.

    I added a bit of fresh cilantro at the very end for garnish...mainly for color. It was delicious!

    These meatballs were delicious...but it's the sauce that's the real star of the show. You can cook anything in that and it would be great! I highly recommend this recipe!
