The fact that these meatballs turn out pretty darn yummy isn’t even my favorite part of this recipe.  My favorite part is that I can whip up this recipe in about 10-15 minutes flat…and for me on a busy weekday night, that pretty much trumps everything.  I also love that you can make this recipe with pretty much any ground meat that you have on hand…and that this means you can sneak in some super-nutritious organ meats without anyone knowing!  Here’s the bad news though: you probably won’t have any leftovers.


  • 1/2 onion, grated on a fine grate
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 pound ground lamb (can replace with beef or pork…and you can sneak in ground organ meats!)
  • 1/3 tablespoon sea salt (I like Redmond’s Real Salt)
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal
  • sprinkle of onion powder
  • sprinkle of chili powder
  • stable cooking oil of choice (I liked using Red Palm Oil
    for this recipe)


1. Combine your finely grated onion and crushed garlic into a large mixing bowl.

2. Place your ground lamb (or other meat choice) into the same bowl and mix slightly.

3. Add in your almond meal and mix a bit.

4. Add in your salt, onion powder, and chili powder and mix until everything is well incorporated.

5. Melt your cooking oil of choice into a large pan (one that has a lid).

6. While the oil melts, form 1-1.5 inch meatballs.


7. Place the meatballs in your pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.

8. Remove from heat and serve!
