Ingredients
  • 1  egg or 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1  cup  fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4  cup  chopped fresh mint
  • 2 3  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 2  pounds  ground lamb
  • 1 16  ounce bottle  pomegranate juice
  • 1  teaspoon  sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1 1/2  cups  plain Greek yogurt
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh chives
  • 1  garlic, minced
  •  Fresh mint leaves (optional)
  •  Toasted pita bread wedges (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In large bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, mint, 2 or 3 cloves garlic, salt, and pepper. Add ground lamb; mix well. Shape into 32 meatballs; set aside.

2. For sauce, in medium saucepan bring pomegranate juice to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 25 minutes or until reduced to about 1/2 cup. Add sugar; stir to dissolve.

3. Meanwhile, in large skillet brown half the meatballs at a time in hot olive oil, turning to brown evenly. Transfer to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F. In medium bowl combine yogurt, 1 tablespoon of the chives, and 1 clove garlic. To serve, drizzle meatballs with pomegranate sauce; sprinkle with remaining chives and mint. Serve with seasoned yogurt and pita wedges. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
