Oh how I love thai flavors. The slight spice, warm spices, and creamy coconut milk.
These keto thai curry meatballs are sure to be a new favorite. Savory beef + pork meatballs baked in the oven and served with a creamy thai curry sauce.
I’ve combined the 2, and it is a match made in heaven!
Ingredients in Thai Curry Meatballs
These meatballs are made using a combination of ground beef and ground pork (both of which I get from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend!). To keep them juicy, I use a panade of almond flour and chicken stock.
In addition, sauteed onions, garlic + ginger, fresh chopped cilantro and curry powder give these meatballs tons of flavor!
Thai Curry Sauce
I love serving it with my cauliflower rice, chopped cilantro and wedges of lime. Another favorite is serving it with the sauce tossed in hearts of palm pasta with a handful of spinach. Amazing if you’re a noodle lover! If you want more heat, top it with some thai chilis!

Thai Curry Meatballs
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, grated or finely minced
- 1 tablespoon chopped ginger (could substitute 1 teaspoon dried ginger)
- 1 pound ground beef (85% lean) (I get my beef from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend)
- 1 pound ground pork (80% lean) (I get my pork from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup packed finely chopped fresh cilantro (about 1/4 of a bunch of fresh cilantro)
- 1 tablespoon dried curry powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- Chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, half an avocado, red pepper flakes, sliced thai chiles, wedges of lime, etc
- two 9-ounce packages of hearts of palm pasta (code TASTESLOVELY for 15% off), drained and tossed in the sauce with + a handful of chopped spinach
- serve alongside cauliflower rice
- Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (for easy clean up), and place the wire rimmed baking rack on top.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour and chicken stock. Stir and set aside while it absorbs the liquid.
- Heat a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil, onions, garlic, ginger and a pinch of salt & pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and turning golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
- In the same large mixing bowl that has the almond flour and chicken stock, add the cooked onions & garlic, ground beef, ground pork, 2 eggs, cilantro, salt, pepper and curry powder. Use a spatula or hands to mix until completely combined.
- Use a large cookie scoop (or measure out 3 tablespoons) to scoop out meatballs, and use hands to roll into balls. Place meatballs on wire baking sheet. Will make 24 meatballs.
- Bake the meatballs in the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
- When the meatballs are done baking, make the sauce. In a small sauce pan, combine the coconut milk and thai curry paste. Stir and bring to a simmer.
- Serve immediately while warm, topped with the coconut thai curry sauce. Delicious on top of cauliflower rice or hearts of palm pasta.
- Leftovers will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 5 days, or frozen for 6 months.
Meal Prep Instructions: Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. HEATING: Either microwave until warm, about 3-5 minutes (I like to sprinkle in a little water to help it steam and prevent it from drying out). Or reheat in a 350ºF oven until warm, 10-15 minutes.
Freezing Instructions: Freeze the cooked meatballs in a freezer safe airtight container for at least 6 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight. Reheat either in the microwave until warm, about 3-5 minutes, or reheat in the oven at 350ºF until warm, 10-15 minutes. I like to make the sauce fresh when the meatballs are reheated.
Nutrition Facts: The nutritional information is calculated based on the exact ingredients and quantities listed in the Ingredients above for the meatballs and sauce. It doesn’t include the side (cauli rice or hearts of palm pasta) or any garnishes since these can vary. It is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary, especially if you make recipe substitutions. Always best to go off your own calculations based on the ingredients and measurements you use.
