Operation ‘Paleo-fy Niki’s favourite recipes’ is going well. Thanks for asking.

Niki is picky when it comes to meat. Really picky. Her favourite forms of animal protein would probably be chicken McNuggets (and the actual meat content of that is all but questionable), cheeseburgers and the overly processed meatballs they serve at birthday parties. The ones where beef is the tenth ingredient. The TENTH ingredient.

Seeing as all the ingredients bar the beef would be paleo friendly, this was a slight challenge- but one which doable. Then the ever kind sister threw the spanner in the works- she wanted her favourite condiment- the sweet and sour sauce to compliment the meatballs. Sister of the year award right there.

Anyway- I decided to play around with some ingredients, adjust some sauces to get that happy balance- and dammit, I think I nailed it.

These meatballs are moist, flavourful and to be honest- I’m glad Niki demanded suggested the sweet and sour sauce- It takes it up a notch. This quick, easy and healthy meatball recipe will change the way you look at ground meat again- and leave you snubbing those birthday party treats.

Just kidding, you need to eat those to balance the vino.

Ingredients

Meatballs

  • 1 kilogram ground beef Can sub for other ground meat
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour sifted
  • 1/2- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 eggs

Sweet and Sour Sauce

  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoon coconut aminos soy sauce substitute
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup tomato passata sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoon orange juice
  • Coconut oil for frying

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground meat, minced garlic, diced bell pepper and diced onion. Add the salt, cumin and red pepper flakes and mix well.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and add to the mixture with the sifted coconut flour. Add the almond milk, 1/4 cup at a time until meat mixture is moist. Form mixture into golf sized meatballs and set aside.
  • Coat a large frying pan with coconut oil and once hot, add the meatballs to cover the pan in an even layer. Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip, and cook again for another 2-3 minutes. Continue the process until all the meatballs are cooked. Set aside.
  • In a large pot, add coconut oil and fry the garlic until fragrant. Add the coconut aminos, honey, tomato passata sauce, orange juice and red pepper flakes. Cook on low heat and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Once sauce has thickened, remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, add the meatballs then pour the sauce evenly over until the meatballs are fully coated.
  • Serve immediately, or allow to cool

Notes

These meatballs can be refrigerated for up to a week or frozen for up to a month- however, it would be best to freeze the meatballs and the sauce separately.

  2. Hey Arman,
    I was wondering about how many would this make, and about how many would you suggest as a healthy serving size?
