{NEW} Mediterranean Grassfed Beef Meatballs 🍅🌱

These Savory Tangy little meatballs are PERFECT to serve as your protein with a meal, as an appetizer on toothpicks.

OR my personal favorite: tucked neatly into glass food prep containers in the fridge for our next few meals ahead!

The addition of fresh chopped herbs really gives these meatballs such a fresh, complex flavor.

I know you’re going to love them!

Serve alongside a Greek chopped salad (many versions found on the CFC site) and you’ve got a delicious, fresh meal in minutes!

makes 4 servings
Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. lean grass-fed ground beef
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (ground oatmeal)
  • 2 Tbsps chopped fresh dill
  • 2 Tbsps chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 Tbsps chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp finely ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • 2-3 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp avocado or olive oil

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients except for the oil, and stir everything until well combined. I usually do this with my hands because that’s how my grandma taught me to do it Take a spoonful of your mixture and using your palms dipped in a bit of oil, shape into a ball. Repeat with remaining mixture. I love to use my small cookie scoop for this part because I can get them all pretty even.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add in about 1 Tablespoon of oil, swirl the pan to coat, then gently add in each meatball leaving some space in between each.

Cook for about 8-10 minutes, turning on all sides until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with a fresh chopped Greek-inspired cucumber and tomato salad with feta and enjoy!
