Sweet and Sour Sauce


  • Mince the garlic and onion.
  • In a large non-stick frying pan, add the 1 tbsp of olive oil and fry the onions and garlic on medium-heat until soft. Turn off heat.
  • Transfer them to a large bowl.
  • Add the ground pork, egg, almond flour, ketchup and salt & pepper to the bowl and start kneading with your hands.
  • Make 20 meatballs with the meat mixture and place them in the same non-stick frying pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil.
  • Fry on medium heat for 5-10 minutes until all sides are cooked through.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sweet and sour ingredients. Pour it over the meatballs.
  • The juice from the meatballs and the heat will start thickening the sauce. Cook until the sauce has reached desired consistency, 1-3 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and transfer to a plate for serving.


I like to keep these in a tupperware all week long and add 2-3 meatballs to my lunch boxes.
I've also tried boiling the meatballs instead of frying them and it worked just as well! If you want to limit some of your calorie intake, you could definitely try it this way.
