I LOVE Greek food, and these Greek Lamb Keto Meatballs are no exception. We live in Oakleigh, Victoria which has a very strong Greek heritage and it shows in the food. The large majority of restaurants around us are Greek. We joke that we moved to Oakleigh just for the food, but it’s actually true!

- How many carbs in Greek Lamb Keto Meatballs?
If you haven’t tried many Greek dishes before I strongly recommend these meatballs. They are simple and quick to prepare, and with a side of basic rocket and some lemon wedges make a speedy weeknight meal or even a weekend lunch. I have had these Keto Meatballs as leftovers for lunch the next day and they are just as good.
Ingredients for Greek Lamb Keto Meatballs
Lamb is one of the fattier meats available, which as we know on keto this is a good thing. The creaminess of the lamb is offset by oregano, cumin and coriander, and when served with tzatziki these keto meatballs are the perfect little mouthful. The fattiness of the lamb makes these keto meatballs really moist and juicy!
You will need:
- Rocket leaves
Substitutions and Ingredient tips
You can either use store bought tzatziki (as always, check for carbs!), or make it yourself using my simple recipe that accompanies my Chicken and Halloumi Kebabs. These keto meatballs comes together in 5 minutes, takes 10 minutes to cook and lasts for days.
Tips for making Greek Lamb Keto Meatballs
- MIX AND COMBINE In a large mixing bowl, combine all meatball ingredients except olive oil.
- MIX THOROUGHLY Mix together thoroughly with your hands, ensuring all ingredients are evenly incorporated. By using your hands, the lamb fat starts to melt and helps glue the meatballs together.
- ROLL Roll the mince into tablespoon size balls.
- HEAT In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Fry the meatballs for 7 – 10 minutes, turning regularly to ensure they are golden brown on all sides.
- CHECK Check for doneness (a little pink in the middle is ok, it’s lamb!)
- SERVE Serve atop the rocket leaves with lemon wedges and tzatziki.
- Fridge: You can make the meatballs ahead of time and store them on a parchment-lined baking sheet for up to a day. Cooked meatballs can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to four days.
- Freezer: Place the meatballs in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to freeze. Freeze until solid, then transfer to a freezer-safe bag or container. Store in the freezer for up to three months.
