I really discovered the wonders of the Tishbi wine preserves when I discovered this recipe. it is so easy and so flavorful, I can't make enough to satisfy everyone.

  • ServingsServings


  • 1 pound ground veal or beef or lamb
  • 1 small onion, chopped finely
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon tishbi wine preserves (I like the cabernet, but any will work)


Mix meat and onion with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Heat a frying pan over medium high heat.  Add a small coat of oil to prevent sticking.  Shape meatballs into small circles and then throw them into the hot pan. Roll around to brown on all sides.  Then add the Tishbi Wine preserves, allow it to liquify, cook a few more minutes to make sure meat is cooked through and serve.

My kids love to eat these with small skewers like in this picture.
