  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup onion, diced finely
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp tapioca flour, or arrowroot powder


  • First, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.
  • Once combined, use your hands to form 1.5 inch wide meatballs.
  • Place meatballs on parchment lined sheet.
  • Then, bake for 15 to 16 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Finally, remove from oven and serve.


  • Finely chop parsley and onion.
  • Combine meatball mixture until seasonings and onions are uniformly mixed in.
  • I highly suggest spraying your hands with nonstick spray before forming meatballs.
  • Form meatballs into uniformly sized balls to ensure even cooking.
  • Depending on fat content of hamburger, more or less tapioca flour might be needed.
  • Bake meatballs for 15 to 16 minutes or until completely cooked through.  I usually cut into a meatball to ensure there is no pink inside.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • If you want to freeze these for a later date, make meatballs and freeze before cooking.  Then, thaw and bake as written.
