Keto Swedish Meatballs

By The Petite Plantation - January 07, 2019

I'm bringing you another Keto dinner but anyone can make and enjoy this recipe. I just find it incredibly easy to make Keto dinners, with a veggie and potatoes or rice for the wildlings who aren't eating Keto. In the beginning of my Keto Journey, I was overwhelmed with all the food preparation to feed myself and the rest of the family but when I create a Keto dinner and add the carb side dish for all the boys, it saves my sanity!

Today I am bringing you Swedish Meatballs which happen to be Keto. But if you careless, use bread crumbs instead of almond flour and cornstarch instead of arrowroot powder!

When ever I make meatballs they usually always fall apart, at least a little bit, which I think is okay because usually the diced onions are what fall out and they get cooked into the sauce so it ends up perfect anyway. But I have found adding your meatballs to a hot pan, letting the one side brown, then flipping to brown the opposite side will allow your meatballs to roll around the pan more easily.

Yes, I know it's a pain but hey
At least you aren't bombarded by pop up advertisements!

Keto Swedish Meatballs


4 tbsp butter divided
1 medium white onion finely copped

500 g ground beef
1/4 cup of almond flour
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/4 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of allspice
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1 large egg lightly beaten
1/2 cup of cream divided

1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

1 1/2 cups of beef broth
1 tsp of Dijon mustard
1 tsp of arrowroot powder


Melt a tablespoon of butter in a cast iron skillet or pan over medium heat. 
Add chopped onion and sauté for 5 minutes. 
Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine onions, ground meat, almond flour, sea salt, pepper, nutmeg, allspice, beaten egg and 2 tablespoons of cream and mix thoroughly. 
Using your hands, form into round meatballs.
Add meatballs to your skillet on medium-high heat and cook until browned and cooked through. 
Once cooked, remove from pan and set aside.

Add the rest of the butter to the pan with drippings.
Add in beef broth, the rest of the cream and mustard to the pan and whisk. 
Let simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine arrowroot with water and add to pan.
Let simmer until desired thickness.
Return meat balls to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes.
