Beef Meatballs

So yesterday I made some meatballs and decided I should post the recipe here. It’s basically a slight variation of Veal Meatballs, Italian-Style with Sauce found on www.scdrecipe.com

Beef Meatballs
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup minced green onion
1 egg
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Form 12 balls and place in a well oiled/greased baking dish. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes, turning once. Serve with ketchup.

An interesting note: you can freeze fresh parsley (or any fresh herb for that matter). I never have fresh herbs around because it’s so much easier to have dried ones which keep for longer. However, you can freeze the fresh parsley in small ziplock bags and break off pieces of what you need at a time. Let it thaw and then use as you normally would. I haven’t tried freezing chopped up parsley but I think it would work too.


I have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since January 2008 to recover from Celiac disease. As part of the diet, I don't eat grains, sugar or potatoes and prepare all my meals from scratch.
