Pork Vindaloo Meatball Recipe Low Carb and Gluten Free


So I’ll be spending time this week trying to find out if it’s salvageable or not, and recovering all of my files (hopefully).

Meanwhile, I’m SO relieved to have the photos of the last few recipes I prepared on my SD card where I can access them, or I’d really be in trouble!

You’re going to be glad too when you try these low carb Pork Vindaloo Meatballs!  Even I was surprised at how much flavor these had!

If you’re not familiar with the term, Vindaloo is a dish from Goa, which is on India’s Western Coast.  Traditionally the sauce is used to simmer pork or even chicken – but it worked perfectly to flavor these meatballs as well.

Spicy, tangy, and a little sweet, they are downright addicting!  To manage the heat, you can reduce or increase the chili peppers.

The ingredients list is a little longer than most of my recipes, but it’s SO WORTH taking the time to obtain some of these things for the sauce.

Cardamom pods are small green seeds that can be found in most grocery stores.  The rest of the spices (turmeric, coriander, mustard powder, etc.) are widely available as well, and they will keep for a year so you’ll be able to use them in other recipes.

Ingredients :

  • 1lb ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cardamom pods, lightly cracked
  • 1 – 2 fresh chili peppers, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar substitute
  • 1 Tbsp low sugar ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

Instructions :

  1. Combine all of the meatball ingredients and mix thoroughly. Form into 16 meatballs. Bake in a 375 degree (F) oven for 15 minutes.
  2. While the meatballs are baking heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add onions and garlic and cook for 2 – 3 minutes until soft. Add the cardamom, chili’s, cumin, coriander, salt, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, mustard powder, bay leaves and cloves to the onions. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the water, apple cider vinegar, ketchup and sweetener to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove the meatballs from the oven and add them to the sauce. Simmer the meatballs in the sauce, covered and over low heat for at least 30 minutes – or up to an hour. The longer they simmer, the more flavor they will take on from the sauce.
