Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Chop the chopped dates roughly, then add them to a small bowl and cover them with boiled water

Set aside to soak

2 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Add the lamb mince to a large bowl with the panko breadcrumbs, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper

Drain the soaked dates, add them to the bowl and give everything a good mix up until fully combined

Divide the mixture into 10 [20] and shape them into meatballs and refrigerate

3 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Deseed the red pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and chop into small bite-sized pieces

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the chopped pepper with a pinch of salt and cook for 8-10 min or until softened

4 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Meanwhile, re-boil a kettle

Add the meatballs to a lightly oiled baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 12-15 min or until they're cooked through

5 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Meanwhile, add the bulgur wheat to a pot with plenty of boiled water and a pinch of salt (the same as you would for pasta) and cook over a high heat for 8-12 min or until tender with a slight bite

Once tender, drain and return to the pot

6 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Add the chopped garlic to the softened pepper with the tomato paste and harissa paste

Cook for 2 min or until fragrant, then add 150ml [300ml] boiled water with a pinch of salt

Give everything a good mix up and cook, covered, for 6 min or until most of the liquid has been absorbed and a sauce has formed – this is your red pepper sauce

7 Lamb Meatballs, Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Meanwhile, pick the mint leaves from the stems, discarding the stems

Chop the mint leaves finely (save some leaves for garnish!)

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks

Add the chopped herbs to the drained bulgur with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Give everything a good old mix up – this is your herby bulgur
