Kefta Mkaouara – also spelled kefta mkawra – is a delicious and popular Moroccan tagine of meatballs and spicy tomato sauce. Eggs are typically cooked on top of the dish as shown, but these can be omitted.

The kefta mkaouara – or meatballs – can be made from ground lamb or beef, or a combination of the two. The sauce should be prepared from scratch using fresh, ripe tomatoes.

The following photos show the traditional preparation of Kefta Mkaouara using the Kefta Tagine Recipe on this site. If you don't have a tagine, a deep skillet with a tight fitting lid will work fine.
