    Hi Kuta!! This looks good. Do you add any spices to the meatballs? Or the tomato sauce? Such as parsley, dill, mint, aleppo pepper (which I now have!!), cumin, or something?

    Okay, Kuta, I tried my interpretation of this recipe, tonight! Here's what I did: I made the meatballs using venison, and the ingredients you listed, but I did add some herbs/spices, trying to stay at least fairly traditional with them. I wanted to make sure I didn't add anything to give this an Italian taste. So, I added fresh dill, salt and pepper, a touch of cayenne, cumin and ground celery seed. I baked these as I do all my meatballs, in the oven, while I fried the taters. For those, I cut them french fry style and cooked them in butter and oil with the garlic, onion and pepper(yellow, cus that's what I had). I cooked them only until just barely tender, not until browned. I added these to the pan, as directed, then topped with the meatballs. Then, in the same pan that I had done the taters/onions, I added tomato sauce and diced tomatoes with their juice(I was unsure about puree/paste, so I thought the important thing was just the tomato aspect :) and warmed it through. Then, I topped the meatballs, and baked as directed. DELICIOUS! :) The meatballs were fantastic, and the entire dish together was so good and different from anything we'd had, as far as how it was served. Thank you for letting me get a "taste" of Turkey! This was a fantastic way to lose my Turkish cooking virginity! ;) I've added my photos! :)
