  • Author: Ester Perez
  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 1x


These easy meatballs are pretty versatile.  You can add them to spaghetti, serve them as an appetizer with a dipping sauce or put them in a veggie soup.


  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxmeal
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. To a large mixing bowl, add beef, garlic, cilantro, flaxmeal, egg and salt. Using hands or a stand mixer, mix until well incorporated.
  2. Scoop a tablespoon of beef mixture and form into a round ball. Make 23 meatballs.
  3. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium low heat. Add coconut oil. When skillet is hot, add meatballs and turn occasionally so they brown on all sides. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Check a meatball by cutting in half to make sure they are fully cooked. Serve with zucchini noodles and marinara.
