Meat Balls in Tomato Sauce:

This dish was perfect.  If you are wondering what to serve for tea and the wind is whipping up a storm outside and you have staggered home from work to a house full of kids like me, focus and keep it simple.

I took a block of beef mince (enough to feed five), added two eggs and half a cup of almond flour, about three cloves of garlic and a bit of seasoning.  This I “squidged” by hand (felt so good after a long day at work) and then formed into meatballs rubbing the mixture round between my palms.  I stuck them in the fridge for ten minutes.

To make the sauce I took two tins of chopped tomatoes and added a carton of passata and a bit of tomato puree, seasoned to taste (although I thought it was already quite salty).  On a whim I chucked in some chilli seasoning and then getting carried away, a spoonful of balsamic vinegar.  I let the sauce bubble and reduce then took the meatballs outta the fridge and fried them gently in coconut oil til the meat had browned up and the inside was cooked.

I served this with some leafy green veg and the colour was bright and autumnal.  I reckon this would be good as a kind of teenager snack.  Make the meatballs a little smaller and spice them up a little with some chilli seasoning?  Very snack-able or packed lunch-able straight from the fridge and upon returning home from school.

 We’d love to hear…

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
