Keto Czech Meatballs

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 1 lbs. ground pork (20% fat)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 medium onion
  • cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dijon or wholegrain mustard
  • 1/2-1 tbsp caraway seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried marjoram
  • tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp ghee or lard
  • 1/2 tsp sea or pink Himalayan salt (or to taste)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley



  1. Peel and dice the onion and garlic. Place on a pan greased with ghee (keep some ghee for cooking the meatballs). Cook over a medium heat until fragrant and lightly browned. Stir to prevent burning. Once cooked, take off the heat and set aside.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the cooked onion and garlic and mix using your hands until well combined.
  4. Using your hands, make medium-sized meatballs (4-5 per serving) and set aside.
  5. Grease the pan with the remaining ghee. Once hot, add the meatballs and cook over a medium-high heat for about 4 minutes, turning occasionally until browned from all sides. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 5-10 minutes. The exact time depends on the size of the meatballs. Work in batches if needed.

6           Remove from the heat and serve immediately. Let them cool down and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. To store them for longer, place in a zip-lock bag and freeze.
