Asian Paleo Meatballs are reminiscent of pork dumpling filling.
These Asian Paleo Meatballs are super easy, have just five ingredients and are Whole30-friendly.
Feel free to dress these up with your favorite dipping sauce or serve alongside a salad—like my Green Papaya Salad—for a complete meal.
To feed a really hungry crowd or for leftovers throughout the week, double or triple the batch.
Asian Paleo Meatballs
Make these Asian Paleo Meatballs, bursting with flavors of sesame, green onions and ginger! These are grain-free and Whole30 friendly.
- 1 lb ground pork
- 2 green onions very thinly sliced (dark green tops excluded)
- 2 tsp coconut aminos
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
- Sea salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the pork, green onions, coconut aminos, sesame oil, ginger, and fish sauce in a medium bowl. Mix until everything is combined but not over-mixed because that will make the meat tough.
Rolls the meat into balls. I used roughly a heaping tablespoon of meat per ball. Before cooking all the meat, I like to heat a tiny amount and check for flavor. If it needs more salt, add sea salt to suit your tastes before you go on.
Arrange the meatballs on the baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until completely cooked through. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
