CHEESY MEATBALL SKILLET DISH







Two skillets filled with tomato and Mozzarella cheesy goodness!  We really enjoyed this meal and I have made it again on another occasion, as it was worth repeating, even although I am constantly having to come up with new recipes for my blog and cookbooks.





CHEESY MEATBALL SKILLET DISH

Our daughter-in-law, Yara Eloff, gave me this recipe to try on a recent visit to our mountain-top home in the jungle.  Awesome!  This recipe makes enough for two skillets with 12 meatballs in each one.  This meal feeds a crowd, or you could freeze one skillet for later, or simply halve the recipe, if you don’t require that much food.  Coconut flour is very absorbent of moisture and helps bind the meatballs…therefore, no breadcrumbs are required.  This is so tasty and looks lovely too...good enough for company!  Lovely with cauli-mash and buttery, garlic green beans or another vegetable of your choice.



2 lbs lean ground beef (0.9 kg)
1/cup grated Parmesan cheese (125 mL)
  (the kind in a can is fine)
2 tbsp coconut flour (30 mL)
1 tbsp crushed garlic (15 mL)
2 eggs
2 tsp liquid smoke (10 mL)
11/tsp salt (7 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (2 mL)
2 tbsp light olive oil (30 mL)
2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese (500 mL)

In large bowl, combine ground beef, Parmesan cheese, coconut flour and garlic.  In small bowl, beat eggs with fork and add liquid smoke, salt and black pepper; beat again with fork to combine well.  Add to ground beef mixture and combine well with your hands.  Form golf-ball sized meatballs.  I used a small ice cream scoop.

In two skillets, in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil per skillet, cook 12 meatballs per skillet, over medium high heat, browning them on both sides.  Reduce heat and add marinara sauce.  Coat the meatballs in the sauce.  Simmer over medium low heat until meatballs are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in the middle.  Cover each skillet with 1 cup (250 mL) grated Mozzarella cheese.  Cover with a lid or just simmer gently until the cheese melts.  Serve.

First printing was in November 2013, and this book was completely revised and is better than ever!  The Introduction is by George Stella, a professional chef, and the most well-known low-carb cookbook author in America.  He used to have his own cooking show, too, on the Food Network.  George wrote an article on Tips for Eating Low-Carb as a Family.  Certainly everyone in his family lost a tremendous amount of weight and all because George changed the way they were eating. Again, this cookbook has a Helpful Hints section.  Dr. Steve Parker wrote an article: Ketogenic Diet Overview. Again, in this book we have a number of great recipes from our low-carb friends in the low-carb community. First printing was in November 2013, and this book was completely revised and is better than ever!  The Introduction is by George Stella, a professional chef, and the most well-known low-carb cookbook author in America.  He used to have his own cooking show, too, on the Food Network.  George wrote an article on Tips for Eating Low-Carb as a Family.  Certainly everyone in his family lost a tremendous amount of weight and all because George changed the way they were eating. Again, this cookbook has a Helpful Hints section with many of the sweeteners discussed and the amount of tsp, tbsp, cups the drops of liquid sweeteners represents; these tables are invaluable in the kitchen, as go buy a bottle of liquid sweetener and then try and figure out how much you need for 1/3 cup sugar sweetness equivalent - next to impossible!  Dr. Steve Parker wrote an article: Ketogenic Diet Overview. Again, in this book we have a number of great recipes from our low-carb friends in the low-carb community.  This book is one I refer to very frequently, because of the low-carb sauces and crepe recipes.
