Simple Recipe For Meatballs?

Requirement: No more than 4 ingredients allowed. Must be possible to prepare in less than 20 minutes.

I get tired of recipes where people add ingredients like crazy. I just wanted something simple, that won't fall apart and tastes good.

We made these last night with the suggested extra spices and they were great! Thanks for sharing. My 5 year-old daughter loved them. I've never seen her eat so much ground beef at once! :-) We fried ours in coconut oil. Next time I'll try broiling them too.

Thanks. It depends whether you have a reaction to nightshades I think, they're even more of a grey area than dairy imo, in that some people are fine and some aren't. I'm sufficiently not ok with them to avoid them most of the time. Especially tricky since there are various things you may/may nor react to in nightshades (alkaloids, salicylates, amines, lectins). Perhaps the heating and processing that makes it into puree, as well as making the lycopene more available also reduces some of the problem chemicals?

Love the lemon juice and pesto ideas!! But shouldn't we stay away from tomatos?

This is a great recipe Alyssa! Have you tried using coconut oil in place of olive oil? Might add a yummy flavour! I've added your blog to my list! :)

What a fun challenge! I've got some grass-fed ground beef in the fridge. I'm gonna try something tonight and see if it works! If it works, I'll post the recipe here. :)

I tried something tonight with my ground beef. I was super delighted with how they turned out!

Paleo Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic

And if you're feeling spicy, add:

  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • dash pepper
  • dash salt

Whisk the egg in a small bowl. Dump it and everything else in a bowl and mash together with clean hands. Shape into 2" balls. Pan fry for 15 minutes in coconut oil on medium heat, until meatballs are cooked inside.

They stuck together really well and were delish!

Next time I'll try baking them for 20 minutes at 350'F as per Alyssa's recipe.

Here's my recipe; http://www.mypaleokitchen.com/?p=70

Not just 4 ingredients, but all very simple ones you probably have at home.

These recipes all sound great. My tip would be throwing something acidic (and ideally tasty), such as lemon juice, over the mince (the longer before cooking the better). This makes it a lot softer and easier to mix/blend by tenderising the meat and emulsifying the fat. I used this for making pork burgers to barbecue, but the principle's the same.

Tomato puree is another good and common binding agent and you get some lycopene and other nutrients for your effort. Another, bizarre one, that I tried just before barbecuing on a whim, is mashing together mince with pesto (if you can make or find one without masses of omega 6). which gives you a complex, interesting blend of flavours in five seconds flat.

I make these meatballs for breakfast - my sons LOVE them, and I do, too! Tasty!

2 pounds ground pork
1 pound (fatty) ground beef
3 tablespoons chopped onion 4 eggs

Put everything in a deep bowl. Mix and mash by hand - I love this part! Roll into 1-1/2 inch balls or spoon onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 18-20 min.

Makes 50 - 60 meatballs which is a TON but they freeze well. I have teenaged boys, so that isn't as many as you'd think.
