Five Spice Paleo Lamb Meatballs
Serves: 12 meatballs (3 servings)
  • 1 lb. ground lamb
  • 1 tsp. Chinese Five Spice Powder
  • ¼ cup finely minced shallots
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs. coconut flour
  • 1 Tbs. coconut aminos, available here
  • 3 Tbs. dried currants
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and have ready a muffin tin.
  2. Combine all ingredients with your hands, then form into 12 meatballs.
  3. Bake meatballs, each in a well of the muffin tin, for about 18 minutes, until cooked through.
  4. Alternatively, Bake the meatballs until only halfway done, then finish cooking by pan-frying them in a skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Finishing them in a skillet allows them to brown, which adds depth of flavor, but it is not a necessary step if you want minimal prep time.
