  • 1
    In a medium bowl, add ground beef, ginger, garlic, eggs and breadcrumbs. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and use your hands to gently mix meat mixture.
  • 2
    When the mixture is completely mixed, make about 30 small, tablespoon-sized meatballs.
  • 3
    In a large skillet over medium heat, drizzle in the neutral oil and add meatballs. Brown them well on all sides, cooking for 6-7 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove meatballs from the skillet and add curry paste, tomato paste, and beef stock. Stir together and let cook for a minute. Then add coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Stir sauce and simmer for 3-4 minutes until it starts to thicken. Taste sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5
    Add meatballs back to the sauce and simmer for 4-5 minutes. The sauce should be very thick.
  • 6
    Serve meatballs with toothpicks or over rice. Garnish with fresh slivered basil.

More About This Recipe
  • Pretty much every culture in the world has some form of meatball. This makes total sense to me. They’re an easy comfort food and you can eat them for a bunch of different occasions. They can work as an appetizer or a dinner! These Easy Red Curry Meatballs are an Asian twist on a classic Italian beef version. Most importantly, they’re really easy! The meatballs and sauce really only have a few ingredients but the flavors are awesome. The meatball base is pretty basic: beef, eggs, breadcrumbs. Plus, I added some ginger and garlic which go well with curry. A pinch of salt and pepper is also a good idea. Serve the meatballs with some fresh basil!
