These Easy Gluten-Free Meatballs are fantastic. They’re made with grass-fed beef, which is loaded with immune-boosting conjugated linoleic acid.


  • 1 pound ground grass-fed beef
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • one 10-ounce package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • ¼ cup finely grated raw sheep’s milk cheese, such as Pecorino or Zamorano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Place all of the ingredients except the oil in a bowl. Mix ingredients together and form into 1 to 1–1/2-inch meatballs.
  2. Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs well on all sides in the skillet and place on paper towels to cool briefly before serving.


These gluten-free meatballs are super versatile. Serve them in a sandwich, add them to gluten-free pasta and homemade pasta sauce or gobble them up with mashed faux-tatoes. Or serve them as a game-day snack!
