Pineapple Sesame Meatballs (Paleo, Whole30)
These Pineapple Sesame Meatballs are a winning combination of Asian flavors and sweet, juicy pineapple!
I love meatballs! They are just so dang versatile, right? Pop ’em on a salad, pop ’em on a baked sweet potato, pop ’em on a lettuce wrap, pop ’em over a skillet veggie hash, pop ’em in your mouth. Oh, so many possibilities!
Our favorite way to eat them is on top of my pineapple ginger coleslaw. It’s such a delicious combination and full of good nutrition. I included my Pineapple Ginger Coleslaw recipe in the notes section of the printable recipe card down below – you don’t want to miss it!
I hope you get a chance to try these Pineapple Sesame Meatballs soon! I think you’ll really enjoy them 🙂
