  • In a large cast iron or heavy skillet heat the oil over medium heat. Add half of the meatballs in a single layer and cook until no longer pink in the center (160°F), about 8 minutes, turning occasionally to brown evenly. Remove and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining meatballs.

  • Serve topped with feta and additional mint, if desired.
