I love steak. There is nothing more delicious and easy to cook than a pan-seared choice cut with fresh herbs and butter. But the reality for hunters is, a large portion of the meat they bring home is turned into hamburger and for people, the purchase their meat from a store, hamburger is less expensive.
While tacos and chili are amazing sometimes it is fun to do more than just brown the hamburger in a skillet. Paleo Green Chile Meatballs add a little variety to your life with minimal effort. The green chiles add variety and a pop of flavor to your life.
I have made Green Chili Meatballs with Dall sheep, moose, black-tailed deer, caribou, grass-fed beef, bison, and ground turkey. Wow, until just now typing this up I didn’t realize I had used 7 different species! All were yummy. If I had some ground pork on hand I would give that a try also. Just use what is available to you.
Typically when up make meatballs you add to soak up all the juice as they cook. This produces a moist meatball, but when you make Paleo meatballs they tend to be dry. Adding gelatin (1 of 3 Superfoods you can add to almost any meal) helps this recipe retain some of the moisture and the pan sauce also adds moisture. If you don’t have gelatin, add it to your Amazon cart, and don’t sweat it, the meatballs will still be yummy.

Suggested serving with cauliflower rice or roasted vegetables. Also good in lettuce cups.
This is a great recipe for meal prep.
A probe thermometer will tell you exactly when meatballs are done, no need for a timer. I recommend and use this one.
Can be cooked on the stovetop. Brown on 3 sides over MEdium-High heat. Then cover and turn down heat to Low, until completely cooked.
