Paleo Cocktail Meatballs

I wanted to have my Mothers cocktail meatballs without the sugar. Here is what I do to make delicious cocktail meatballs that are also healthy.


2 lbs Grass Fed Lean Ground Beef.

1/2 Large Minced Onion

1 Egg

1 TB Coconut Flour

1 tsp Sea Salt

1tsp Dried Mustard

1/2 TB Coconut Aminos (optional for extra ooomph)

1-2 Minced Garlic Cloves

1 tsp Cracked Whole Pepper (I like smoked pepper)

1/4 C Hot Pepper Jelly (paleo friendly versions)

2-3 TB Water

How to Prepare

I like to saute the onions and garlic a little before I combine them with the meat, but this is totally optional. So add everything together in a medium sized bowl, except the jelly and water. Form little cocktail sized meatballs and put them on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet. Put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn them a couple of times to keep maintain the shape.

Once you have your meatballs mostly cooked, place them in a pan or crock-pot. Combine the jelly and water into a sauce and pour it over your meatballs. Cook the meatballs in your sauce for a little while and then enjoy!
