Quick, Easy Paleo Curry Meatballs



It’s Monday after a busy, productive, sun-filled weekend and it is difficult to get into the weekday groove. Part of living and engaging in a healthy lifestyle is to keep the home-cooking fire burning, constantly. As a perk, this recipe not only satisfies the craving for curry, but can be prepped and dinner is ready in 20 minutes or less.

Get out your PaleOMG cookbooks or go to the PaleOMG blog and type in: Curry Meatballs. Juli Bauer is my hero.

Kitchen Gadgets

  • Large sauce pan
  • Two Mixing bowls (one for the meatballs and the other for the sauce)
  • measuring spoons
  • OmniRest, silicone spoon rest
  • Onion Chopper



Curry Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • ⅔ cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • just a hint of cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil for cooking (or other fat you like to use)

Paleo Curry Sauce

  • 1.5-2 cups canned coconut milk (the more the better)
  • 1 cup organic chicken broth
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 5 teaspoons curry powder (based upon your curry obsession)
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ginger


  1. Add all ingredients for your meatballs to a larger bowl and thoroughly mix together.
  2. Shape meatballs to the size you like. Mini meatballs or large ones are both acceptable! We chose to do large ones!
  3. In a large skillet or pot, add your coconut oil then add your meatballs and diced onions from your sauce ingredients and let them brown for a couple minutes. Let the meatballs cook on both sides for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Once the onions and meatballs have browned a bit, add the rest of the ingredients for your sauce and mix together until meatballs are covered in sauce.
  5. Cover and let meatballs and sauce simmer until the sauce thickens and meatballs have cooked through–about 5 minutes.
