add 1 tsp of balsamic 2 min before you are going to serve.



1 pound of organic pork

1 cup fresh bread broken into .5 inch pieces (I did not include this in my balls for the Paleo plan)

1 tsp shallot

3 cloves roasted garlic

1/4 cup of toasted pine nuts


2 tbsp basil

1 tsp thyme

salt and pepper to taste


Loosely mix meat and all ingredients and roll into 1 inch balls

I had bacon fat left over from breakfast and I sautéed the balls in the bacon fat – OHHH YEAH

Once browned I placed in oven at 350 for 20 min.

When meatballs where cooked, 20 min later we mixed with gravy and then ate like it was our last meal!
