How to stop mint flavor dying when cooking?

I notice albondigas recipes involve adding chopped mint leaves to the meatballs. Whenever I do this the minty smell is amazing coming from the freshly rolled uncooked balls however after cooking I cant taste the mint at all, I have used a LOT of mint but even so I still cant taste it. Having read that the mint flavor fades when exposed to heat, how would the meatballs be cooked whilst retaining the flavor? At the moment I brown them in the pan with a bit of oil then add them to the sauce and cook them for about 20 minutes. Thanks
