The Gluten Free & Paleo Meatballs with Keto Peanut Satay Sauce are the Perfect Appetizer for Game Day
For the Keto Peanut Satay Sauce:
1½ Tbsp Red Curry Paste
1 Can Coconut Milk
5 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
3 Tbsp White Vinegar
1 Tbsp Granulated Sweetener
(I used this one)
For the Keto Meatballs:
1½ lbs Ground Beef
½ Cup Pork Rinds
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Onion Powder
Salt and Pepper
For the Keto Peanut Sauce:
Blend the curry paste in a small pot with the liquid from the coconut milk. Once it's fully combined, add the cream from the can of coconut milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then add the peanut butter, sweetener and vinegar to the pot. Stir constantly until it begins to boil again.
Let simmer on low for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
For the meatballs:
Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large bowl mix the ground beef with the crushed pork rinds, the egg, garlic powder, onion powder and salt and pepper. ( If using salted pork rinds you shouldn't need to add much more salt)
Line a lasagna pan or cookie sheet with tin foil. Then roll out, small one inch meatballs. Place the meatballs in the pan, and bake for 10 minutes. Pour off any grease then turn your oven to broil. Bake for another 8 - 10 minutes, turning a few times if needed.
Transfer the cooked meatballs to a smaller baking dish, then cover them with ¾ of the keto peanut sauce. Bake for another 5 - 10 minutes. Serve on their own with the remaining sauce as a dip, or serve as a side with cauliflower rice and steamed veggies.
