These keto sesame ginger meatballs are a fun way to enjoy something different for dinner. Your family will love dipping these low carb asian meatballs using chopsticks into the peanut butter, sesame sauce. The dipping sauce is excellent poured over steamed broccoli and cauliflower rice too!

This meatball is pork based and filled with fresh ginger, sesame seed oil, garlic and green onion. Serve next to your favorite asian keto side dishes and top with toasted sesame seeds.

How to Cook Meatballs in the Air Fryer

The air fryer is an excellent option for cooking your keto meatballs. It leaves a nice browning layer on the outside of the meatball, but retains a juicy interior. I love our air fryer. We use a Philip’s. It makes for easy clean up too. All the baskets are dishwasher safe and I don’t have to clean up a bunch of grease splatter afterwards.

Is Soy Sauce Keto?

Soy sauce contains some carbohydrates. One tablespoon of soy sauce has 1 gram of carbohydrate. If you use a lot of soy sauce, it can add up to a lot of unnecessary carbs. A more keto friendly replacement is to use liquid aminos. Liquid aminos contain zero carbs and are keto approved. It tastes very similar to soy sauce.

Keto Meatballs Without Breadcrumbs

It is possible to make keto meatballs without breadcrumbs. Breadcrumbs provide meatballs structure, support and moisture. As a replacement, we use ground pork rinds in this recipe. They are the keto alternative to breadcrumbs!

You can make ground pork rinds on your own by grinding them up in a food processor or blender. Or you can purchase them pre-ground. The brand that I use is called Pork Panko.

The Keto Asian Dipping Sauce

Definitely, do not skimp out on the asian dipping sauce for these keto meatballs. The sauce is filled with delicious flavors from the garlic, liquid aminos (or soy sauce if desire), peanut butter and sesame seed oil. The sause also has some kick from the red pepper flakes that give it a little hint of spice.

This is one sauce that you will want to dunk these meatballs into to!

How to Store Keto Meatballs

Store your cooked meatballs in the refrigerator in an air tight container. If you don’t want to cook your asian meatballs right away, you can store them rolled up in ball form in the refrigerator for 3 days or put them in a ziploc bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

Freezer meals are ideal for any busy keto family. These meatballs are the perfect low carb recipe to meal prep and use for later on.

If you have chosen to freeze your meatballs, you can unthaw these keto asian meatballs by placing them in the refrigerator the night before.

  1. Where are all the comments?! I made the Asian Meatballs for dinner tonight. The meatballs were good. But I think the dipping sauce over powered the flavor of the meatball. (I used soy sauce) I have a few leftover so I will try them without the sauce and see how they are. Thank you for the recipe.
