1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. In a medium bowl, combine lamb, breadcrumbs, feta, egg, garlic, vinegar, mint, red pepper and salt and pepper to taste. Form mixture into 2-inch meatballs. Wash hands after handling raw lamb.

4. In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil. Once hot, add meatballs and cook for 2 minutes per side or until nicely browned. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 4 minutes or until lamb reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit as verified by an instant-read food thermometer. Remove from heat and keep warm.
