Meatcubes

The other day I wanted to make the Spiced lamb meatballs with balsamic-fig compote from Practical Paleo. Meatballs are relatively quick and easy to make, but the bottleneck for me is always the shaping step, so I had the great idea of making “meatcubes” instead, by forming a big rectangle with the seasoned minced meat and chopping it into squares, as shown in the pics below.

Perhaps the resulting morsels are not as attractive to the eye as their spheric counterparts, but the trick saved me some valuable time.

BTW, the dish was delicious. So far all the recipes I’ve tried from Practical Paleo, have been great.
Apart from recipes, the book has lots of information on health and nutrition, with guidelines for specific conditions. Worth every cent.
