Quickfire Challenge – Make a meatball for Kelis. Except chefs are given meats to pick from, but must use a hand grinder to turn into ground. That shaved a LOT of time off for some, but all chefs seem to have made a good meatball.
Sue – Spicy Pork Meatball, Spicy Tomato Sauce – Sue put some cheese in the middle, and Kelis dug it.
George – Chicken and Short Rib Meatball, Spicy Tomato Broth – She found it not to her liking. George gets no milkshake.
Alex – Spicy Lamb Meatball, Toasted Fruit and Almond Couscous – He served it with the bowl sitting on a bed of uncooked lentils. She liked it, but was unhappy with the lentils. What? Who cares about the part you aren’t eating!
Floyd – Fried Beef and Bacon Meatball Sandwich with Asian Slaw She finds it to be too salty, but chose to eat it without the bread. Because that’s how everyone eats a sandwich.
Traci – Tarragon Chicken Meatball Consomme – Not a good looking dish, but it seemed to taste good. Kelis senses some dill, but it was just fennel.
Mary Sue – Turkey Albondugas Soup with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Machego Cheese – MS seems to have forgotten the vinegar, but no matter, it worked pretty well.
John – Vietnamese Chicken Meatball – Kelis thought it was fantastic.
Suvir – Indian Spiced Meatball, Tamarind Glaze – Nice sweet and spicy combo.
Unibrow – Lamb Merguez, Shiitake Slaw and Yogurt – She likes it, but not the yogurt, which Unibrow bristles from a bit since that’s the way you are supposed to eat it.
Botton Three – George, Floyd and Unibrow
Top Three – Sue, John and Suvir. John wins with his simple meatball, and Sue really could have used that win, as it turns out.
