Super Bowl Meatballs

This Everyday Paleo recipe is a favorite of ours and one we will serve to guests.  It’s unusual flavor combinations make it a very interesting dish.

SUPER BOWL MEATBALLS

Meatballs

1.5 lbs ground beef

½ cup dried unsweetened cherries, finely diced

5 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup diced cilantro

½ teaspoon sea salt

½ tablespoon Garam Masala

Dash or two of cayenne pepper

Black pepper to taste

2 tablespoons coconut oil

Sauce

1 6oz can tomato paste

1 can coconut milk

5 green onions, diced

1 ½  teaspoons Garam Masala

½ teaspoon sea salt

Pan drippings from meatballs

Using your hands mix together the meatball ingredients except for the coconut oil.  In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat.  Make sure the pan is nice and hot before you start adding your meatballs.  Once the oil is hot, form golf ball size meatballs and add to the pan.  Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown.  Remove the meatballs and set aside.  To the pan drippings add the tomato paste, onions, and spices and using your whisk, blend these ingredients together with the pan drippings.  Slowly add the coconut milk, whisking as you pour.  Once the sauce is well mixed, bring to a simmer and let it cook for 3 minutes.  Add the meatballs back to the sauce, cover the pan and cook for three minutes.  Turn the meatballs over so that they are coated with sauce, cover and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve with a few diced green onions on top. Delicious!!!!
