Middle Eastern Meatballs?

James would probably have been just as happy -- or maybe even happier -- with a plain old burger. But I get bored and have to branch out now and then. Tonight it was just a small stretch. Kefta, Middle Eastern fried meat patties made with seasoned beef or often lamb. I mixed cumin, parsley, coriander, cayenne, S&P, grated onion and a pinch of cinnamon into ground beef and formed oblong patties to pan fry in a combination of olive oil and butter. I served the crisped kefta on top of saffron scented rice with a cucumber celery salad, hummus, and, slipping just a little further East, spicy Harissa, a tunisian fiery flavorful hot sauce.
