Meatballs with Chutney Sauce
Tender, juicy meatballs simmer in a lusciously sweet and mildly spicy sauce made from mango chutney and pickled jalapeño juice. Though we call to serve over fluffy couscous, the meatballs have more versatility than that. You can pour the meatballs and sauce into a crock, set out toothpicks for guests to spear them with, and serve as an appetizer. Or tuck the meatballs into hoagie rolls with sliced bell peppers, or into warmed whole-wheat pita with a smear of tahini. Either way, you'll have an awesome take on sandwich night. The recipe calls for ground lamb, but you can substitute ground beef instead; grass-fed ground beef would taste particularly rich and come closer to the original intent of the recipe.
