Gluten Free Paleo Meatballs

Gluten Free Paleo Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh onions
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp. sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • pinch of nutmeg

Shape:

  • 2 lb. ground chuck

Instructions

  1. Cover bottom of baking pan with:
  2. 1 cup beef broth
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  4. Stir together all the ingredients (except the ground meat) in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add the ground chuck and mix together thoroughly. Use a portioning scoop with retractable blade or two spoons to roll your meat balls. Because these have no bread as a binder its best to make your meatballs small. Coat a baking sheet or shallow pan with olive oil. I like to line the pan with foil first as it makes less of a mess. Space the meatballs on the pan so they are not touching each other.
  6. Cover bottom of pan with beef broth. Bake for about 25 minutes.
  7. These meatball can also be fried in olive oil but this takes quite a bit longer and you must use a spoon when turning the because the have a tendency to break apart if using tongs. 
  8. NOTE: For variety, use ground turkey, ground chicken, or a combination.
