Primal meatballs

Ingredients for 25-30 meatballs

  • 3 lbs of grass fed ground beef
  • 3 eggs (farm fresh egg yolks for AIP)
  • 3 C pulverized, cooked cauliflower (7 minutes in the microwave to cook it, no water stir halfway through)
  • 1/2C parsley
  • 3-6 cloves garlic chopped or pressed
  • 1TBS salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1C raisins (omit for strict AIP, include if you are eating some sugar or some fruit)
  • 1C grated parmesan (omit for AIP or find grassfed top quality cheese)
  • 1/2 inch of oil in the pan to fry, bacon fat or olive oil or coconut oil

Mix all the ingredients together except the oil and then make 1 meat ball and fry it in hot oil with the temperature on medium – medium low in the pan. Brown it on all sides, about 2 minutes each side. Try that meatball and see if you need to add anything to the mixture like more salt. We cook these in a really large stainless saute pan and cook them in batches of 6. Don’t crowd the pan or they will not brown properly. Don’t mix the meat and ingredients too much or it won’t stay together in a ball.
