Kefta recipe similar to Thami's, in Fes? [moved from Middle East, Southwest Asia & Africa board]

Hey everyone, I went to this great casual street-side restaurant called Thami's, in Fes, Morocco last year, and they had a great kefta tagine (but it seems the true name of the dish may also be kefta mkaouara), which consisted of small meatballs served in a bubbling hot tomato-based sauce, with a raw egg or two cracked on top of it at the time of serving.

I've been trying to find a similar recipe ever since returning, and I've had no luck. All the recipes I've found (including the one in Paula Wolfert's book) are too onion-y (both the meatballs and the sauce).

I know this is a longshot, but if anyone has a recipe for a kefta tagine/mkaouara that is similar to the one served at Thami's, could you please share it? Again, I know the chances are slim to none, but I figured I'd give it a shot here.

Thanks!
