What is it about meatballs that make them so comforting and fulfilling? They're also compact and fun so the kids love them. I also love them because I can hide things in them LOL. Before we were Keto I used to hide a tom of veggies in my meatballs and meatloafs because otherwise the kids wouldn't eat them. Now my views on nutrition have so drastically changed. I still hide some veggies (old habits die hard), but I also add some beef liver (sometimes) or beef liver supplements (shhh!)
These keto meatball versions include extra parmesan cheese mixed inside the meatball as well as some pork panko and almond flour as binders. They always come together to nicely and are juicy, filling and delicious.
2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoon beef tallow, divided (or Kerrygold butter)
