This meatball recipe came about right after a long road trip back home and got to get ready for the upcoming work week.

As you may have known already that I started the keto diet back in 2018. A year later, I slowly got more carbs in my diet again. But majority of the time, it is always low-carb meals. This is one of them that I want to stick to my routine. But I was so exhausted to do anything after a 2-week vacation. (You know sometimes you came back from your vacation, you need another one to get back to your normal routine.) So, I went with this one-pot dinner.


This recipe was created with low-carb diet in mind.  Your family members may want to have some carbs to go along.  If so, add some quick pasta on the side.

Most store-bought frozen meatball is average 1g of carb per meatball.  This easy frozen meatball recipe uses an entire bag which may be too much to your liking.  So, feel free to cut down the portion to meet your carb consumption limit.

Although this recipe uses frozen Swedish meatballs, you can use any kind of frozen meatballs. I recently made this recipe again. But I only had Italian style frozen meatballs in the freezer. That was my only choice which I ended up using them with an Asian twist. Everything turns out as awesome as the original recipe. So, there is no limit but the sky.

Add an Asian Twist

I recently made this easy frozen meatball recipe again and wanted to make it spicy. So, here is what I did with an Asian twist:

  1. Skip Worcestershire Sauce.
  2. Add 1 heaping tablespoon of Korean Kimchi paste before stirring in garlic. While the pot of food is hot, stir everything around so that the paste can blend in instead of sticking to a few meatballs or broccoli florets. (Note: It may sound a lot of Kimchi paste. But with such a big amount of food in this one-pot meal, the spicy flavor is very mild.)
  3. Stir in a splash of Chinese light soy sauce before adding salt and pepper to taste.

2 4oz (113g) Cans Mushroom Pieces (drained)
1 Can (14oz / 397g) Beef Broth/Stock
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1tbsp Minced Garlic
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients together in a big deep skillet in this order: frozen meatballs, mushrooms, beef broth, extra virgin olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, frozen broccoli florets, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cover with lid and turn on to high heat (takes about 10 minutes to come to a boil).
  3. Once steam starts to push open the lid, stir in garlic.  Stir regularly until everything is cooked through and vegetables are crisp tender. Enjoy immediately!
