Moroccan Meatball Recipe?

Many years ago I had a truly exceptional Shabbat dinner with a Moroccan family. One of the dishes served was a savory meatball dish. This is what I know. The meat was a mixture of ground lamb and beef. The main spice was mace, and there were green peas in the gravy and it was served over couscous.

Does anyone have any ideas for a recipe?

Try Googling "meatball tagine," maybe? There seem to be a number of recipes out there for such a thing. You may find that you want to adjust seasonings and add the peas if they aren't in the recipes you see online, but they should at least give you the basic process.

these recipes seem to be more cinnamon and cardamom based. They definitely were not a tagine style but thank you!

No, this look a bit more like a stew with meatballs. The one I am looking for had a brown sauce and no veggies other than peas.

Not all too familiar with Moroccan cooking, oddly enough. Taking a guess it's along the lines of Middle Eastern/Tunician/Turkish cooking?

Also try searching the term "kefta" (Moroccan meatballs made from ground beef and/or lamb--a popular dish in halal as well as kosher cuisine) as a possible point of departure,

These don't seem quite right.
