Zero-carb easy meatballs
Would you believe it if I told you that you could make meatballs with just 2 ingredients wait, did I mention zero carb!!
That’s right – just TWO ingredients! It’s why You could call ’em lazy meatballs. But you know what? You’d never know it.
You’d think I slaved over them for hours.
They’re tasty, moist and perfect over some riced cauliflower or spaghetti zoodles.
The secret to these meatballs is NOT to use lean ground beef. The extra fat keeps the meatballs moist, so you don’t need to add anything else to them.
The minimal handling of the meat as well as the small size of the meatballs also contribute to their tenderness.
Our two-ingredient meatballs involve almost zero percent effort on your part—
This is Amaze-BALLS of a recipe! Seriously yummy in the tummy and such a time saver in the weekday rush. Also an amazing leftover remake because you can freeze the leftovers and pull it out and have an instant trip to Italy for your taste buds.
The Ground Meat
You can use any ground meat or mix of ground meat you like. My personal favorite is a blend of ground beef and pork, but good old fatty beef is awesome!
I’ve also done just ground turkey and just pork. Ground lamb, turkey, chicken, veal, or buffalo would also be awesome.
Keep in mind that the fattier the meat you use, the more tender your meatballs!

This plan is strict and a bit tough, but we made it through the first week. It’s ok, to do hard things it helps us grow and change.
