Herb american lamb meatballs with a horseradish dipping sauce on a plate


For the Lamb

  • 1 pound Ground American Lamb
  • 1 tablespoon dill, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/3rd cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 small grated onion, about 2 tablespoons 1/2 of a lemon zest
  • 1/3rd cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Horseradish Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4th cup mayo
  • 1/4th cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Finely chop your ingredients and onions. In a bowl with your ground lamb, add in all your lamb seasonings, spices and herbs. Mix really well and set aside at room temperature.

In the meantime; in a bowl, mix your mayo, sour cream, chives, horseradish, white wine vinegar and salt and pepper. Mix well and set in the fridge.

Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper (optional to add baking oil spray) and take a small ice cream scooper or tablespoon and scoop your meatballs. Shape in your hand as a ball and place on the baking sheet - it makes about 15-16 meatballs.

Bake for 10 minutes and broil on high for the last 5 minutes, all in the top rack of your oven. Serve with your horseradish sauce.
