Greek-styled lamb meatballs are easy-to-cook recipes and I prefer using ghee here instead of other cooking oils. Butter ghee offers high smoke points and one of the easy butter ghee uses is its versatile pairing with all types of meat recipes. Ghee’s high smoke point is favorable for feep frying recipes like meatballs. Try the recipe with ghee and let’s share how it cooks.
