  • 0.9 lb (400g/ 14.1oz) ground pork (20% fat)
  • ⅓ Average (80g/ 2.8oz) spanish chorizo or other hard type
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 large egg (free-range or organic)
  • 1 small (70g/ 2.5oz) white onion
  • ½ cup (50g/ 1.8oz) almond flour
  • 1 tbsp ghee or lard (or make your own ghee)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Peel and dice the onion and garlic and dice the chorizo sausage.
  • Grease a large pan with ghee and add the chorizo, garlic and onion. Cook for 5-8 minutes over a medium heat or until lightly crisped up. Take off the heat and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, egg, almond flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, ground cumin and salt.
  • Mix until well combined and add the crisped up chorizo, garlic and onion from the pan using a slotted spoon.
  • Using your hands, make small-medium meatballs and place on a cutting board.
  • Heat the pan where you cooked the chorizo and onion over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Once browned, turn the meatballs on the other side using a fork and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5-10 minutes. The time depends on the size of the meatballs.
  • Remove from the heat and serve immediately or let it cool down and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. To store them for longer, place in a zip-lock bag and freeze.
