          Pakistani, I think. It was given to me by a woman I used to work with. We love it.

      2. Chili!
        Or, scramble it with some diced onion and have it with mashed potatoes. This is comfort food for me

          1. I second meatballs.

            I made one from Molto Mario's cookbook called Molto Italiano. They were really good. They were moist and soft like butter, not dry little nuggets.

            The recipe also calls for fennel seed which I love and really complements the beef.
