Grilled Moroccan Meatballs Recipe | Spiceology

The first recipe in the series will be these Grilled Moroccan Meatballs and can I just tell you right now….they were so delicious that there was a mad dash for the last skewer! Seriously.

Epic Grilled Moroccan Meatballs!

We used our Tandoori Glory spice rub mixed with some fresh minced garlic and 80/20 ground beef.  Wait wait wait…don’t worry about the fat content.  Whenever you’re grilling, it’s always a good idea to go with a fattier ground beef mix or you’ll end up with dried out hockey pucks.  No one wants to eat that!  Juicy burgers (and meatballs) come from a little extra fatty goodness.  Ok, let’s just get to this super easy recipe because you really need it in your life.  Serve it with warm naan and a quick Chive Yogurt (recipe follows).

Grilled Moroccan Meatballs Recipe

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs 80/20 ground beef
  • 6 tablespoons Tandoori Glory Spice Rub
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into large chunks
  • 1 yellow onion, cut into large chunks

Instructions:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the ground beef, Tandoori Glory, minced garlic and season with salt and pepper.  Mix until just incorporated.  Using wet hands, roll into balls about the size of a golf ball.  Set aside.
  3. If using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak in warm water for 45-60 minutes prior.  If using metal, begin by threading each skewer with a chunk of onion, green pepper, meatball, red pepper, tomato and repeat until the skewer has around 3 meatballs.  Set aside and repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Place skewers on the hot grill and allows to cook for 5-7 minutes before turning.  Lift carefully and turn and cook for another 8-10 minutes, or until done to your liking.  Remove and serve right away with warm naan and Chive Yogurt (see below).
