In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, tomato paste and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
Form beef mixture eight 31g small balls.
Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Brown meatballs on all sides, approx. 1 min per side.
Add salsa to the skillet and cover. Simmer for 10 minutes, adding a little water (1 tbsp at a time) to the mixture if the salsa reduces too much.
Arrange shredded cabbage around meatballs in the skillet. Cover again and simmer until the cabbage is wilted, approx. 2-3 min.
You can also turn these into patties! Simply split the beef mixture into two patties instead of small balls. Brown on both sides and cook the same way as listed above. If you want to add more heat, add another ¼ tsp of cayenne pepper without going over your calorie count for the recipe.
