Sometimes it doesn’t take much to enhance a meal. This time I harvested a bit of Thyme, Lemon Basil and some spinach from my 3rd floor garden. All of it is going into making pork meatballs with spinach and feta.
Pork meatballs with spinach and feta
- 500 grams of organic ground pork
- 1 egg
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Fresh Thyme
- Fresh Lemon Basil
- 1/2 onion
- About 50 to 100 grams of spinach
- Salt and pepper for seasoning
Chop the onion, spinach, herbs and feta finely and add to your ground beef in a mixing bowl. Add the egg as well as salt and pepper.
Mix well. I always use my hands both to make sure everything is mixed well but also to add a little love.
Shape the meatball in the size you want. I like to use a tablespoon; it gives a good size meatball. Make sure they are all roughly the same size so they cook evenly. Cook in a pan with melted butter.
Cook until done. You can check the meatballs by pressing down on a meatball with a fork. If the liquid is clear they are done, if it is still cloudy they deed a little more time.
All done – serve with any side dish. I made a lovely salad to serve with these lovely meatballs.
Enjoy – Sara
