İzmir Köfte (6 Portions)
Meatballs are one of the most popular meat dishes enjoyed throughout the Balkans, Mediterranean, and Turkey. This version is called Izmir koftes and it takes its name from the same city located on the southwestern coast of Turkey. The special flavor of this meat dish comes from the fact that the meatballs are cooked in the oven instead of a grill with their marination. This allows the dish to be cooked in its juice and gives its distinct saucy flavor. We use grass-fed cattle meat, onions, bread, and eggs for our delicious meatballs. As a final touch, we garnish our Izmir koftes with a generous amount of black pepper, red pepper, and parsley flakes. You will definitely enjoy this dish if you are a meatball lover!
