Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Heat Olive Oil (to taste) in a small saute pan over medium heat. Saute White Onions (1/2 cup) until soft and translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the Garlic (1 clove) and saute until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Step 2
In a large bowl add the Ground Lamb (1 lb) , Ground Cumin (1 tsp) , Ground Coriander (1 tsp) , Dried Basil (1/2 tsp) , Dried Oregano (1/2 tsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1/4 tsp) , Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) ,  Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) , Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp) , Fresh Dill (1 Tbsp) , Egg (1) , Breadcrumbs (1/3 cup) , and cooled onion/garlic mixture.
Step 3
Mix until well combined, then gently fold in the Crumbled Feta Cheese (3/4 cup) .
Step 4
Roll into 1 1/2 ounce meatballs. This yields 14 meatballs.
Step 5
To cook the meatballs, add 3-counts of Olive Oil (to taste) to a large skillet (cast-iron works great). Heat to medium high heat. Add the meatballs and cook 3-4 minutes on each side until crisp and brown. If you like your lamb more medium-rare, 2-3 minutes will do. Keep warm.
Step 6
Heat the Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) and Butter (1 Tbsp) in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat.
Step 7
Once the butter has melted, saute the White Onions (1/2 cup) until soft and translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the Garlic (1 clove) and cook until fragrant, about 45 seconds.
Step 8
Add the Low-Sodium Chicken Broth (2 cups) and bring to a vigorous boil. Stir in the Farro (1 cup) reduce to a simmer, and cover. Simmer until the stock has completely evaporated and the farro is plump, about 20 minutes.
Step 9
Once the farro is cooked, remove from the heat and stir in the Frozen Green Peas (1/2 cup) . Season with Garlic Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) , tasting and adjusting as needed.
Step 10
To serve, arrange the farro on a large serving platter. Cover with the meatballs and some fresh Fresh Mint (to taste) (optional). Enjoy!
