Sticky Pomegranate Meatballs are a fun, Moroccan twist on a meatball! Loaded with fresh herbs and then glazed with a sweet, sticky pomegranate sauce, they are bound to tickle your tastebuds!

I think that it’s fun to twist things up every once in awhile! Not only are these Sticky Pomegranate Meatballs delicious, but they sure are pretty! The pomegranate sauce reduces down to a glossy, deep maroon sauce that adds a decadent look to these meatballs. You can serve them up as an exciting weeknight dinner, or bust them out to impress your guests or date! Either way you serve them, they are sure to be a fun hit.

Sticky Pomegranate Meatballs are best served on a bed of Almond Herb Couscous, if you ask me! A complete meal to change things up from the norm. We didn’t mind having leftovers of this, either!
