Ingredients for Low Carb Meatballs


  • 1 ½ lbs of ground (minced) beefsteak (preferably grass-fed or organic)
  • 8 scallions (spring onions) finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (optional) finely minced
  • 2 organic eggs, beaten
  • optional 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (not to be included for true Paleo eating)
  • ½ teaspoon of sage (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 bunch of chopped cilantro (coriander) to garnish

It's best to use organic ingredients if possible.

Low Carb Meatballs Recipe Method


Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a skillet, gently cook the chopped scallions (spring onions) with the minced garlic until slightly softened.

In a large bowl, mix the softened scallions and garlic, with the ground beef, sage, cheese, beaten eggs, salt, and pepper. Divide the mixture into meatballs, each approximately 1½ inch (the size of a golf ball).

Arrange the meatballs on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

When cooked, sprinkle with the chopped cilantro (coriander) and serve hot with a fresh green salad or low carb vegetables.

Low carb vegetables play an important part in a healthy low carb diet. However, not all vegetables are equal in carbohydrates. Some vegetables are relatively high in carbohydrates.

If you are unsure which vegetables are best for a low carb diet, see our free Low Carb Vegetables Chart. You will find the link to that page awaiting you further down this page.

This completes the low carb meatball recipe. Avoid any ingredients to which you are sensitive or allergic. Consuming anything to which one is (perhaps unknowingly) sensitive or allergic can inhibit weight loss.

If you are unsure and you would like to know how to test this out for yourself, see our "Paleolithic diet" page [listed on the navigation/menu buttons].
