Soutzoukakia {Meatballs with Cumin, in Tomato Sauce}

Usually, I’m posting recipes from a back-up.

I simply do not have the required time to cook or bake every day. My real job is happening. And then, my 3-4h of eat-clean-rest-sleep are happening.

And what did I cook? Soutzoukakia! AKA beef meatballs with generous amount of cumin, served in tomato sauce. The recipe varies a bit from the hard-core traditional you can find in the web, but that’s the variation my mother taught me. And we like it!

So, the photo will go here:

Take my word for it: Delicious!

So, what am I cooking?? Surprise, surprise: PLENTY!

Let’s see:
