Salisbury Meatballs

FullSizeRender (5)

Whenever I get busy I make the same things over and over and over again. 1) because they’re easy 2) because they’re easy and 3) because I lack inspiration sometimes!

That’s when I start stalking some of my favy blogs, searching my cookbooks,  & searchin Pinterest! I’m on a Pioneer Woman kick… I day dream about what parts of my future kitchen will look like her lodge (seriously y’all, have you seen it?! So much room for activities!!!). And the ranch… Oh the space!!!

Until then, I’ll continue to revamp her recipes & make them fit into my goals…. I can’t be eating half sticks of butter & expect to be comfy on my cruise, in sitting position, in a bathing suit!

Salisbury steaks are delish (as long as you don’t get the tubing or the arteries or whatever they are)…


But the steaks without that ish remind me of home & all things comfy. šŸ™‚

Here’s what I did & I just adapted what Ree did (you rock, Ree, by the way!).

For the balls:

-1 lb grass-fed beef

-1/4 cup flaxseed meal

-1/4 cup almond meal

-1 tbsp of ketchup

-1 tbsp honey

-1 tbsp Dijon

-1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

-1/4 tsp salt

-1/4 tsp pepper

For the sauce:

-1 tbsp coconut oil

-1/2 large onion chopped or sliced

-1 pack of sliced mushrooms

-garlic powder

-1 1/2 cups of beef stock or broth

-1 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce

-squirt of ketchup & Dijon

-1 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder mixed in with a little extra beef stock/broth

Preheat oven to 425.

Mix the beef, almond meal, flaxseed meal, ketchup, honey, Dijon, Worcestershire, salt, & pepper and made them into 1-2 inch round balls. You just want them to be the same size. Place on an aluminum foiled lined baking sheet and pop in the oven for around 17 minutes.

While those are cooking, heat the coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add in the chopped onion, mushrooms, & season them with garlic powder (just a good sprinkle). Cook those puppies for a bit (5-7 min) then add the beef broth & bring it to a boil. Add in the extra Worcestershire, ketchup, & Dijon. Once it’s boiling, add in the cornstarch & broth mixture. Stir, stir, stir cause it’s gonna thicken fast! Reduce heat to low and if you need to add more liquid, do it!

When the meatballs are finished cooking, add them to the sauce & you’re all done!

Makes about 6 servings. We ate ours with brown rice & green beans. It would also be delish with cauliflower mash, mashed potatoes, or pasta! Enjoy!
