Yesterday I made a really delicious meat sauce and served over spaghetti squash. I overshot and accidentally took out an extra pound of meat. That extra pound of meat had to be used up, and meatballs are a huge favourite of the kid over here, so I figured these would be the perfect option for dinner tonight. This recipe is adapted from Practical Paleo.
1 lb ground beef
1 chipotle pepper, chopped
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Preheat your oven to 375*.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Get in there with your hands, to make sure it's mixed thoroughly.
Form into balls. I used roughly 2 Tbsp for each meatball.
Sear in a hot pan. I put a bit of bacon grease into mine before cooking the meatballs.
When brown, turn the meatballs. Put into the oven and bake for approximately 12 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165*.
I served these alongside a bowl of Broc-cauli
Stew and it was a really delicious combination.
