Welcome to my Paleo minced pork and apple meatballs recipe.
You’ve probably noticed a theme on the site this month. Actually it is the same every month. All our recipes are easy to make, frugal and fall under the radar of 100% Paleo.
I used to find in the old days that diet food or healthy food as might call it, had to be bought in specialist health shops and that you were considered a hippy if you actually went in there. I even remember not so long ago that people thought you were weird if you ate organic.
But now it is perfect and you are considered as amazing if you embrace that way of life. Now with it being so easy to source everything to eat healthy it means that it is now open to everyone.
With so many meals featuring pork and regular everyday foods just without all the rubbish as well, we can all enjoy a better quality of life.
In this recipe I will be showing you how the simplicity of pork and apple into meatballs can make something so delicious you will want to tell the world about it.
- 1.5Lbs Ground Pork
- ⅓ Cup Diced Apple
- 1 Diced Onion
- 1 Beaten Egg
- 2 Garlic Cloves
- ½ Tsp Sea Salt
- ¼ Tsp Black Pepper
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- For the Honey-Mustard Sauce:
- 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 5 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. I love to use an airfryer for these as they cook them quicker and they taste nicer.
- Combine the pork, apple, onion, egg, crushed garlic cloves and salt and pepper in a bowl, using a wooden spoon or your hands until well mixed together.
- Shape the mixture into 1½-inch diameter meatballs.
- Add the coconut oil to a frying pan and add the pork balls, for about 5 minutes, turning every 30 seconds until browned all over. Put the frying pan in the oven make sure the handle is not plastic and bake for a further 15 minutes or until they are cooked through.
- Combine the apple cider vinegar, honey and Dijon mustard together to make the dip, then serve the sauce with the meatballs.
