In this article I am going to give you the recipe for a delicious low-carb meatball with an amazing sauce, that my wife made for us this past Thanksgiving for all of us to enjoy. And I am also going to give you a recipe that I made myself for a chocolate peanut butter bar.
- Grass fed ground beef– 2 pounds
- Tomato sauce– 1/4 cup
- Minced yellow onion– 1/4 cups
- Gluten-free tamari sauce– one tablespoon
- Dry mustard– 1 tablespoon
- Minced garlic clove – one clove
- Sea salt– 2 teaspoons
- Ground black pepper – 1 teaspoon
- Liquid smoke– one teaspoon
- The ingredients for the sauce are:
- Unsalted butter– one stick
- Cream cheese– 2 ounces
- Beef broth – 1/3 third cup
- Grated Parmesan cheese – 1/2 cup
- Ground nutmeg – 1/8 teaspoon
Start by preheating your oven to 325°F. Then in a very large bowl combine all of the ingredients together and mix everything total it’s totally combined. After you have mixed all of the ingredients together it’s time to make your meatballs. Try to shape them into 1 1/2 inch meatballs and place them on a baking sheet and let them bake for about 45 minutes or 1 hour. Just make sure that they are totally cooked all the way through.
Now it’s time to make the sauce while meatballs are baking. Take a nice sized sauce pan and place the butter in there and heat until’s the butter starts to sizzle and you start to see brown flecks. Just make sure that you are stirring this because you do not want the butter to burn. Decrease the heat to a low setting and mix in the cream cheese, Nutmeg, Parmesan cheese and bone broth and let this simmer for approximately 16 to 17 minutes. Remove the meatballs from the oven when they are cooked. Now all you have to do is arrange to them on a serving dish and enjoy them with the sauce.
This recipe makes about 16 servings as an appetizer if you make the meatballs smaller or if you make them larger you should be able to make about eight servings.
