How to Make: Basil Beef Balls (+Video)

March 9, 2014 Updated: March 8, 2014

I love Thai food. I love the spices that they used. I love the flavors. Everything! This dish is a Thai-inspired dish. 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 minut
