1 large onion, chopped

1 large green pepper, chopped

3/4-stick butter

Salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon paprika


1 1/2 pounds ground chuck

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 cup raw rice or cracked wheat (fine #1)

1 medium onion, chopped

1 teaspoon summer savory (mezra)

2 teaspoon sweet basil, crushed

3 hard-boiled eggs, cut in half (optional)


Cover cracked wheat with 8 cups water. Cook for 40 minutes. Add water if necessary. Add tomatoes and simmer 20 minutes. Prepare meatballs by mixing meat, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; salt, rice, onion, summer savory and sweet basil, and form into 6-8 meat-balls. (If using hard-boiled eggs, wrap meat around 1/2 of an egg and form meatball.) Drop meatballs in sauce and simmer 30 min­utes. Stir frequently. Sauté onion and green pepper with butter until only glossy. Add salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and paprika, and stir. Pour into meatball sauce. Simmer 5 minutes. Stir and remove from heat.
