Thai Curry Beef Meatballs
Serves: 3-4 servings
Curry sauce
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ inch ginger, minced
  • 1 tbsp green curry paste
  • 1-14 oz can of full-fat coconut milk, recommended brand here
  • 2 tsp fish sauce + more, to taste
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • Lime wedges, for garnish
  1. Mix all ingredients for the meatballs, except coconut oil, in a large bowl. Use your hands to form into golf ball sized meatballs.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the meatballs in the skillet for 6-8 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  3. Remove the meatballs from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Add diced onions into the skillet and cook in the leftover beef fat until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add garlic, ginger, and Thai green curry paste, and cook stirring for 1 minute.
  6. Add coconut milk, fish sauce, and turmeric powder, then add the meatballs back in the pan. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens and the meatballs are cooked through.
  7. Add more fish sauce, if needed. Serve with lime wedges.
