Kufteh (Bulgarian Meatball)

Martin loves these and so does everyone else.  They are simple and delicious!  Enjoy!


8 ozs ground veal (If you want just use 1# ground beef or ground pork)
8 ozs ground pork
1 small onion, minced
3 Tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste (I find 1 teaspoon is plenty and I love salt)
1-2 teaspoons ground cumin
black pepper

1.  Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.

2.  Divide the meat into 4 equal portions.  Lightly wet your hands with cold water, then form each portion into a patty 3 inches across and about 3/4 inch thick.

3.  You can grill or fry, whatever is easiest for you.  4 minutes each side should be enough.

I also used this like a taco mixture.  We made crepes and filled with the mixture along with a couple of french fries, topped with cabbage and cheese spread.  

Martin used to enjoy this when he lived with his grandparents in Sofia.  Always nice to bring back some fond memories in your kitchen for those you love.
