Creamy Curry Meatballs

I am so excited.  After SO MANY MONTHS of not cooking, not trying new recipes, (honestly, not even really that eating clean, eeek),  I finally found a recipe that inspires and suits me: convenient, filling, and utterly delectable.  Between pregnancy and moving to Hawaii, blogging and cooking have really taken a back seat.  But like every passion the fire returned, even after all this time!

I won’t even apologize that this is not my original recipe, and it may even be old news to many of you.  But, I came across this and wanted to share just in case anyone was not aware of this awesomeness from Everyday Paleo.  I kept the meatball recipe the same, but I did make some minor adjustments to the sauce–to make it creamy, and mostly because her sauce called for only half-a-can of some things…I don’t like doing that.  🙂

 

Meatballs

3 lbs ground beef
(feed a crowd, enjoy leftovers or freeze half for next time!)

1 cup finely diced onion

1 cup apple finely diced

1 egg

2 tablespoons curry powder

½ tablespoon sea salt

black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400. In a large bowl, place all of the meatball ingredients and mix well by hand.  Form into golf-ball sized meatballs, and place into a large glass baking dish.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  While the meatballs are roasting, whip up the sauce!

Curry Sauce

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons curry powder

1 can (6 oz) tomato paste

1 can (14 oz) coconut milk

1/2 c water

juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper to taste

In a saucepan whisk all ingredients together, bring to a simmer.  Add a few more tablespoons of water if you prefer the sauce slightly thinner…I like mine thick!  After the meatballs are done, drain them in a colander, and return them to their baking dish.  Pour the sauce over them, make sure they are well-coated.  Yum!

I served them over sautéed kale and cauliflower rice.  My kids gobbled these up, and the leftovers tasted even better.  I loved that I had all the ingredients on hand!  These meatballs would also make a phenomenal freezer meal.

Enjoy!
