Preparation steps

1.

Scald the tomatoes, rinse in cold water, peel, quarter, core and dice finely. Peel the onions, celery and garlic and chop finely. Sauté together in a hot pot in the oil until translucent. Pour in the broth and mix in tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, sugar and lemon juice and simmer gently for about 10 minutes.

2.

Meanwhile, soak the roll in lukewarm water. Knead the ground beef in a bowl with the expressed roll, egg, the lemon zest and breadcrumbs, then season with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into small balls. Add the sauce and leave over low heat with lid closed for 10-15 minutes until done. Stir occasionally and pour in broth as needed.

3.

Before serving, garnish with the dill. Serve with couscous as desired.
