I tried this very delicious recipe out on the entire family the other day and was rather delighted when everyone ate it! Even my fussy 4.5 year old! Score!
So I thought it definitely had to be shared with you too. Who doesn’t love cooking one meal for everyone?!
1/2 cup (75g) kalamata olives, pitted
375 g Beef Mince
1/3 cup (25g) fresh breadcrumbs
1 tbsp oregano, finely chopped
1 tbsp lemon rind, grated
75 g fetta, crumbled
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup (140g) Greek-style yoghurt
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 pocket pita breads or flat bread
60 g Baby Rocket
2 roma tomatoes, thickly sliced
1. Finely chop half the olives. Combine the chopped olives, mince, breadcrumbs, egg, oregano, lemon rind and half the fetta in a bowl. Season. Shape tablespoons of the mixture into meatballs.
2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
3. Meanwhile, combine the yoghurt, garlic and 1 tablespoon of warm water in a small bowl. Season.
4. Spread pita breads with half the yoghurt mixture. Top with the rocket, tomato, remaining fetta, remaining olives and meatballs. Drizzle with the remaining yoghurt mixture to serve.
