Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound lean ground beef
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 Cup fresh cauliflower, broken into small pieces
  • 1/2 Cup fresh broccoli, broken into small pieces
  • 1/3 Cup matchstick carrots
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 Teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 Teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon italian seasoning

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Sauté onion and red pepper in the coconut oil for 5 to 6 minutes.

Add the carrots, broccoli and cauliflower, cook another 5 to 6 minutes.

While cooking, add ground beef to a large mixing bowl along with seasonings, mix well.

When vegetables are done add to beef mixture, fold in.

Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray, scoop meatballs with a tablespoon, and roll each one into a ball shape.

Bake meatballs for 24 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy.

Meatball Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Meatball Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
