Classic Pork Meatballs- Whole30

Oh. My. Gah. 

I have seriously died and gone to heaven. These meatballs are amazing. And the best part? Even my kids love them! 

What you need:

  • 4lbs ground pork
  • 2/3 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes 
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda

You’re gonna want to preheat the oven to 425*F. Go ahead and line to baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil. 

In a large bowl, combine pork, parsley, garlic, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. In a small bowl mix the water, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Add water mixture to the meat mixture and mix to combine. I found it easiest just to use my hands. 

Next grab an ice cream scoop and scoop out meat. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place meatballs on the prepared baking sheets and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Be sure to rotate the pans front to back and top to bottom halfway through the baking time. Bake until brown. Let cool. 

Store in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
