Coconut Curry Pork Meatballs

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 20 minutes  |  Cook Time: 30 minutes  |  Serves: 4


Pork Meatballs

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, minced
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Coconut Curry Sauce

  • one 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup smooth all-natural peanut butter (don’t use any brand that has added sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (or chili garlic sauce) + more to taste if needed
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder


  • Spiralized turnip noodles, rice noodles, or buckwheat noodles for serving
  • Minced cilantro for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl use your hands to mix together all the ingredients for the meatballs. Form the mixture into about 12-15 medium-sized balls. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet and keep to the side until ready to use.
  3. Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce until completely smooth and creamy. This works best with an immersion blender or small food processor. Taste test and adjust seasonings as needed.
  4. In a large oven proof pot or cast iron pan heat the 2 tablespoons of coconut oil over medium high heat. Add the pork meatballs in a single layer (you made need to do this in batches) and brown them on all sides (about 2 minutes per side). Remove from the heat. If you had to brown the meatballs in batches now you can place them all back in your pan (it’s okay if it’s a bit crowded now) and pour the sauce over the meatballs. Place in the oven and cook for about 15-18 minutes (or until the meatballs are cooked through).
  5. Serve over your choice of noodles and garnish with minced cilantro.
