I decided to use my current stash of leftover bones as a way to imbue extra layers of flavor as well as gelatin into my favorite sauce recipes. A soy and gochujang based version is one of my most-coveted. That’s why I call it “God Sauce.” It goes well on everything savory that it touches.
Harissa’s origins are from the North African country of Tunisia and it is, essentially, a delicately spiced chili pepper paste. In addition to red chili peppers, the herb and spice combination can include such delicious components as garlic paste, coriander, saffron, rose, caraway, cumin, onion, etc.
The paste can be found in most grocery stores or it is also easily available online. It makes a great complement to any meat dish (chicken, turkey, beef, goat, lamb, fish) and works in many stews or as a flavoring for rice or couscous. I would call it North Africa’s ketchup, but that would be severely under appreciating the glory of harissa.
I decided to try to make an African & Middle Eastern inspired meatball recipe using the paste and thus was born these delicious harissa meatballs.
