  • Coconut Meatballs



    This recipe was such a huge hit at my house last week that we had it twice, so I thought'd I'd share. I modified it from the Fat Flush Cookbook(eek!). It's asily doubled.


    Coconut Meatballs

    1# ground beef

    1 finely chopped onion

    2 pressed garlic cloves

    1 beaten egg

    1 cup coconut milk - divided

    1 tsp ground cumin (or more)

    1 tsp coriander

    1/4 tsp cayenne (or more)

    1/2 tsp salt

    1/2 tsp fish sauce

    3 TBS coconut oil

    chopped cilantro for sprinkling over top


    In a bowl mix the ground beef, onion, garlic, spices, egg, salt and 4 TBS of the coconut milk until combined. Heat coconut oil in skillet. Shape meat mix into balls and fry up until nice and brown (no longer pink inside). Once the meatballs are all done keep them warm in a low oven (like 300 degrees or so). Pour off extra fat if you want. Add the remaining coconut milk to the skillet and scrape up all the nice brown bits. Pour coconut gravy over the meatball, sprinkle with cilantro and serve. YUM!

    As I read all the ingredients, I smelled Thai in the air.

        Holy Guacamole, DebFM - I just finished prepping a batch of buffalo meatballs for tonight's dinner that is incredibly similar to yours. Can't wait.

          This sounds delish. Just to clarify, is it 3 or 4 TBSP of coconut oil? Thanks, Deb!

            Mmm this thread made me very hungry. I have a pound of ground beef in the freezer that must be turned into meatballs now.

              @MariaNYC, it's about 3 TBS of coconut oil to fry the meatballs in. You do also use 4 TBS of coconut milk to make the meatballs. Clear as mud?

                    These sound great Ill have to try em. I just made a batch of meatballs last night, instead of breadcrumbs I used unsweetened shreeded coconut and finely chopped walnuts. AWSOME

                      When I read the title I was imagining shredded coconut mixed into the meatballs, so I might add that. But this is definitely going on the list for next week. Yum.

                        How crucial for flavor is the fish sauce? I hate buying a whole bottle of something just to try for one recipe.

                            Fish sauce has little or no impact on the taste, Dragonmamma. No problem leaving it out.

                              I made them without fish sauce (I think it&#39;s fermented and I&#39;m fighting candida) - they were still yummy!!
