Caraway Meatballs with Honey Chilli Glaze

Labels: { } | © 2018 |

These crowd-pleasers are sweet, spicy and with a hint of caraway and garlic! Caraway meatballs coated with honey chilli glaze are great on any appetizer tray, used as the pitta sandwich filling as the main, or served over rice for a weeknight meal.

  • 500 g Ground beef
  • 25 g Dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp Caraway seeds
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1-2 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Chilli flakes
  • Thyme leaves
  1. Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg and caraway seeds in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 10-12 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Stir in minced garlic and cook briefly. Add the honey, chilli flakes and cook, stirring, until the meatballs are evenly coated. Taste and season. Garnish with thyme leaves. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Angie, these are gorgeous meatballs! I've never made any quite like this (but I do have caraway seeds on hand). The idea of putting them in pitas sounds perfect.

No beef for me. Nonetheless, I am loving their meatballs. I am certain chicken mince or lamb mince will be favorable for this same recipe?

Caraway is a spice I’ve had a difficult time loving, but as I am maturing, I am able to tolerate it more and more. Combined with the sweet chili glaze, I wiuld have difficulty resisting!
