With my boyfriend's low-carb diet in mind, I created these meatballs for a meal we can both enjoy.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put beef, sausage, pecans, curry powder, five-spice powder, and garlic powder in a bowl and blend together. Make a well in the middle and crack the egg into it; fold mixture together until evenly moist.

  • Whisk vinegar, honey, and ginger together in a separate bowl and set sauce aside.

  • Roll meat mixture into 2-inch balls and place in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook, turning frequently, until browned outside and no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes. Add sauce to pan and quickly toss meatballs to coat. Cook until sauce is beginning to permeate meatballs, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

For those who prefer a spicier taste, double the amount of garlic in the meatballs and add 1 teaspoon black pepper to the sauce.
