Got Goat?

A little mistake resulted in a delicious supper. The following recipe was intended for ground chicken, turkey or lamb. We used goat. Amazing.

From A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg - Doron's Meatballs with Pine Nuts, Cilantro and Golden Raisins

Yogurt Sauce
1 cup plain yogurt, whole milk
3 TBS lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt

*Whisk and set aside to mingle at room temperature while making the meatballs.

1/2 cup minced yellow onion
1/4 cup minced cilantro leaves
1/2 cup chopped pine nuts
1/2 cup golden raisins, roughly chopped
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs (whir a torn slice in the processor)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
fresh ground black pepper
1 pound ground goat tenderloin

Mix onion - black pepper well. Add goat. Lightly mix with hands. Form into meatballs and fry in a skillet with olive oil until cooked through. I browned mine good and finished them in the oven. Serve with yogurt sauce. Drink the leftover sauce with a straw. Kidding. But you'll want to.Check Spelling Am I not the worst recipe writer ever?!
