Thai Ginger Paleo Meatballs

I love meatballs. Since we do a lot of food prep around here, I make meatballs at least twice a month. Usually more. I've tried almost all of the meatballs in Well Fed 2, and while I like most of them, I also enjoy being spontaneous and making up my own recipes.

This is one of those.

Preheat oven to 360 degrees f and cover two pans with parchment paper. This makes about 30-40 balls depending on how you portion them.

Thai Ginger Paleo Meatballs
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • 4 tablespoons coconut aminos 
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger or a one inch piece of fresh, grated ginger 
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 eggs (I used duck, I am sure that chicken would work fine as well)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon powdered garlic or two cloves garlic minced 
  • handful of mushrooms (I used shiitake) about 1/2 cup roughly chopped
Mix all of the above starting with the beef and pork. Make sure well incorporated. I use a tablespoon to portion it into balls, and arrange on a baking pan. Bake at 360 degrees f for 25 minutes, or until cooked through.
