Best Meat for Keto Stuffed Meatballs?
When it comes to meatballs, almost any ground meat or poultry can be used with pretty good results. For this keto stuffed meatballs recipe, I used ground beef with an 80/20 ration of meat to fat, which is easy to get and produces a tender and juicy result.
Excellent alternatives would be ground pork (also tender and juicy) and/or ground lamb, which would complement the flavor profile very well.
If you are trying to reduce fat, or don’t eat mammal meat, then ground turkey with a blend of white and dark meat (not 100% breast which would be extremely dry) will work pretty well, but the texture will be dryer and the flavor less intense.
As mentioned above, these low carb meatballs make a great addition to a salad or antipasto platter or charcuterie board for a first course.
I made some garlic and herb olive oil for mine (just crushed garlic, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper) and ate them at room temperature and I think that was my favorite, but they are good no matter how you serve them.
Even served plain these feta-stuffed meatballs are loaded with flavor!
