Keto Sesame Ginger Asian Meatballs Directions
To a large bowl, add all of the meatball ingredients and mix until combined.
Roll meatballs into a golf ball size shape.
Air fryer instructions
Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees for 3-4 minutes before adding in the Asian meatballs. Add the meatballs to the basket of the air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for 6-7 minutes for until the interior of the meatball is cooked through.
On a parchment lined baking tray, add Asian meatballs and bake in a 400 degree oven for 9-12 minutes or until cooked through.
Heat a couple tablespoons of avocado oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs in a single layer in the skillet. Space about 1 inch apart making sure not to overcrowd the skillet because you want the meatballs to brown on the outside, not steam. Work in batches. Cook meatballs on all sides until browned on the outside and cooked through in the interior.
Place meatballs in a freezer safe bag and arrange in a single layer. To thaw out for cooking, place in the refrigerator the night before cooking.
To make the sauce, add the ingredients except the lime juice into a saucepan. Heat over medium high heat until bubbly. Then reduce heat to a simmer. Continue to cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and add in lime juice.
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.
These are super yummy. I left out the pork rinds and made Lettice wraps instead. I also cut out the salt and used amino acids as well. They were SOOOOO Good. Done this meal a few times now.
