Basil Beef Balls

This dish is a Thai-inspired dish with spices and flavors that reminds you of Asia.
It’s moist, juicy, and spicy! And if you have some leftovers, heat it the next day in marinara sauce and have it with some pasta.

4 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs ground beef (preferably 85% lean)
1/2 c almond flour
2 eggs
1 roasted red pepper, about 1/3 c, chopped
1/4 c wheat-free soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 t fish sauce
1 t sriracha, chile sauce or hot sauce
1 handful fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 lime, zested

1. Preheat your oven 400ºF.

2. In a small skillet, heat up a teaspoon or 2 of your fat of choice and saute the garlic until it’s golden, but not brown.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients (except the beef). Now add the beef and mix well, making sure everything is thoroughly combined.

4. Portion out the mixture, using a cookie scoop, onto a parchment or silicone/silpat lined baking sheet.

5. Pop in the oven until cooked through, and the tops have slightly browned (you may need to switch to broil), about 20-30 minutes.
