  Thai Meatballs

It took me a good three attempts to perfect these Thai Turkey Meatballs just right, and man are they a hit. The first time, the flavors just weren’t there… The second attempt was better, but needed a little more. Third times a charm because these FLEW off the plate. We couldn’t stop talking about how much we loved them and wanted them again.

  1. These look terrific. May give them a try this week with my family. I laughed when I saw your comment about Sushi. Tried this at home also, but my rolls were too thick with rice. Just couldn’t get the right amount of rice in the roll to make it hold together, too much. Any hints from your class?

  2. These sound amazing Lexi!! And look so good. Glad you had an awesome weekend. A night making sushi followed by meals out and shopping sounds like it was a great way to spend a few days.

      1. Currently, no because of the chile paste and red pepper flakes. However, I am starting to think about some reintroductions. Overall, I haven’t really felt different doing AIP. I have an appointment with my endocronologist next week. Hopefully I’ll get more blood tests done to see how my thyroid levels are doing and then go from there. Will let you know how it turns out (I’ve been missing not tasting some of the goodies you’ve posted recently). 😀

  3. I loved the flavors in these meatballs. The meatballs and sauce were on the salty side for me so I would eliminate the salt in the recipe and find some amino that is low sodium. I would also double the amount of sauce for the meatballs; I found that it wasn’t enough as a single recipe.

  4. HI Can’t wait to make these tonight (finally)!! How many meatballs would you say is a serving size? Thank you for all your recipes and cook book!!!

  5. These look great, I can’t wait to try! Do you know if there is anything to sub the coconut aminos with? Thanks!

  6. So excited for these but they are sooo sticky! Whats your trick to rolling them into balls when they get stuck all over your fingers? Thanks!

  7. I’ve never heard of amminos, are they better for you than tamari or soy?
    If you don’t like fish sauce can I omit it?

  8. These are absolutely amazing! I make a few without chili paste for the kids and then add extra for the hubs and myself. Everyone absolutely loves these over rice!

  9. I made these today, using a #100 disher ((1.8 teaspoons) to portion. They were adorable little hors d’oeuvres! I served them on a square plate, with the dipping sauce in the center (in a square bowl). HUGE hit, and I will make them again and again!

  10. Love these meatballs!!! This recipe is very forgiving, I’ve added chopped red bell peppers and mushrooms to get some extra vegetables in. Make extra, you won’t regret it because they are so good reheated!

  11. These were so flavorful and delicious- and all three of my children enjoyed them as well!!! That’s a win in my book! Served them with a yummy crunchy Asian style broccoli slaw ??

  12. These meatballs were so delicious! The flavors were amazing and it is a nice quick recipe! I served them with sautéed sweet potato noodles.

  13. After I made these the first time my husband declared them “the best thing I have ever made.” Really?! Haha! I make them weekly now. My toddler likes them if I make them in a stick shape. I like to dip mine in a sweet Thai chili sauce too. Great with rice and a chopped Asian salad. The fresh ginger is everything!

  14. Another go to recipe for our family. We served them rice noodles (for those that aren’t watching carbs) and zucchini noodles for the rest of us. They are loaded with flavor. Easy to make and definitely easy to eat. We doubled the sauce since we are excessive dippers (lol).

  15. These were excellent! I shared the recipe with some non-paleo folks as well! I doubled the sauce and added a small amount of truvia for a sweet heat and used half the sauce on some carrot noddles (caroodles?). My boyfriend gobbled it up!

  16. Oh my word I love these, I could eat them every day, nice and spicy, I might make them a little more spicy next time

  17. i made these tonight and they were so amazing! I can’t wait to eat them again, I made a double batch and frozen some. The flavors were so fresh and they felt lighter than a normal meatball. Thanks!

  18. I made these as a meal train meal for a friend (and their family) that had been in the hospital. I knew the wife was celiac and wanted them not to worry about finding food for her to enjoy with the whole family during this hard time. This recipe was so easy to make, traveled well and they absolutely loved it!

  19. Love this recipe! It’s a great twist on a meatball, easy to prepare, freezes well and is delicious. I always use sriracha in place of the chili paste and I use soy sauce sometimes to make it lower carb for carb cycling days. I like to serve over cooked zoodles or cauliflower fried rice. The first time I made them my husband asked me to make them again.

  20. I made this today and the meatballs were delicious and easy. The sauce was too salty for us, but the meatballs were a winner! I served them as fresh spring rolls: shredded lettuce, pepper strips and fresh basil with two meatballs wrapped in a rice paper wrapper – they are fun to assemble and to eat. I tried to save the sauce by adding some water and peanut butter but it was just too, too salty. Next time I’ll use my regular peanut sauce recipe, which uses far less coconut aminos. (Yes, I know peanut butter isn’t truly paleo …)

  21. So we love thai food but these were not a hit at our house. I used a light soy sauce instead of the coconut aminos as per suggestions in the comments. The sauce was SO salty; like inedible. That’s all you could taste. And the meatballs were dry. Not sure where we went wrong. Served with an asian slaw that I didnt salt and some sriracha mayo to try to save it and it was ok.

    1. Sorry these didn’t work out for you! Perhaps you cooked the sauce for too long and it got too concentrated. Also, if the meatballs were dry also sounds like they might have been overcooked! Sometimes oven temperatures can vary, so using a meat thermometer can help decide when they are cooked enough.

  22. These are fantastic! I’ve made them twice this week (second batch currently in the oven)…even my 12 year old son raved about them. These are definitely going in the rotation!
