Mortadela With Garlic Recipe - Mortadela the Middle Eastern Version. Although the name is Italian, this is the Middle Eastern Version, Mortadella recipe is also great for sandwiches, with hummus, as hors d'oeuvres, for parties, family gatherings.  Can be served as a Main dish, Side Dish, or an appetizer.

Instructions:

1) In a mixing bowl mix the ground beef and the first 8 ingredients to combine.

2) break a whole egg onto the meat.

3) Separate the yolks from remaining two eggs. Add the whites to the mortadela reserve the yolks in a small container for later.

4) Puree 5 cloves of garlic or pass them through a garlic press. Add t to the meat mixture. Combine well.

5) Deep your fingers in cold water and flatten an amount of the meat mixture over your palm or use a flat plate.

6) Arrange the sliced garlic on the now flattened mortadela meat and sprinkle some crushed chili flakes. (optional).

7) Bring the ends together and seal as I have demonstrated on the video.

8) Dip your fingers lightly into the water and smooth out the mortadela sealing all the cracks.

9) Seal and smooth out the mortadellas using the reserved egg yolk.

10) Bring a large pot half full of water to a boil. Add all the ingredients into the pot ( TO BOIL THE MORTADELA).

11) Drop the mortadelas carefully into the boiling water and cook for about 20 minutes. (more time is needed for larger mortadellas.)

12) Transfer to a serving dish with a slotted spoon. Let it cool down completely before you slice and serve. Although this is a traditionally Italian Recipe, it has found its way to the Middle East and this is the the Middle Eastern Mortadella recipe.
