Ingredients

For the Meatballs

  • 80 ml Milk
  • 1 Pitta Bread torn into pieces
  • 500 g Beef Mince
  • Bunch Parsley chopped
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Dried Coriander
  • 1 tsp Aleppo Pepper
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 3 cloves Garlic crushed

For the Tomato Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 400g tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Harissa

For the Aioli

  • 1 clove Garlic crushed
  • 2 Egg Yolks

  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice

To Serve

  • Handful Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • Couple of handfuls Rocket (Arugula)
  • Flatbreads

Instructions

  • In a large bowl pour the milk over the pitta bread and leave to soak for 5 minutes. Add the beef mince, the parsley, oregano, cumin, coriander, aleppo pepper, garlic and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Mix together and form into meatballs, you should get about 12 meatballs.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil over a medium-high heat in a skillet and fry the meatballs until browned. You might need to do this in batches. Set them aside and heat another tablespoon of oil. Fry the garlic for 2 minutes then add the chopped tomatoes and harissa, cook for 5 minutes until thickened.
  • Add the meatballs back to the sauce and cover the skillet. Cook for 15 minutes. Meanwhile make the aioli. Whisk together the garlic and egg yolk. Slowly pour in the oil while whisking until emulsified. Add the yoghurt and lemon juice. Serve the meatballs in flatbreads with rocket, cherry tomatoes and aioli.
