How to Make Meatball-Tomato-And-Egg Tagine - (Kefta Mkaouara)

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the ground meat, grated onion, parsley, cilantro, cumin, cayenne, and salt and pepper. Wet your hands and form the mixture into 1-inch balls.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a tagine, cazuela, or black iron skillet set over a flame tamer over medium heat. Sauté the meatballs in the oil until well browned on all sides. Remove the meatballs from the pan to a dish.
  3. To the same pan add the chopped onions, tomatoes, garlic, parsley, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, and pepper. Cook uncovered for 30 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced to a thick gravy.
  4. Add the meatballs back to sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. Carefully, break the eggs into the sauce and poach them for 5 minutes, or until set. Serve at once, directly from the pan with chunks of dense, crusty bread.
