Beef Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground beef turkey, or venison
  • ½ c bread crumbs gluten free (or non-GF if not GF)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ t salt
  • ¼ t pepper
  • ½ t garlic powder
  • 3 T olive oil


  • 2 stalks broccoli chopped
  • 3-4 T olive oil
  • ¼ t salt
  • ¼ t pepper

Brown Sauce

  • ½ c soy sauce . + 2 T. , gluten free (or non-GF if not GF)
  • 2/3 c water
  • 2 T cornstarch sifted
  • 1 T sesame oil
  • ½ - 1 t Sriracha sauce
  • ¼ t ground ginger
  • 3 T honey
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • Cooked rice or rice noodles


For the Beef Meatballs:

  1. Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, and mix until well combined. Roll meatballs into about 26-30 small meatballs.
  2. Heat deep skillet or pan to medium heat with olive oil in it. Place meatballs in the pan and cook for 10-14 minutes, flipping the meatballs about 3 to 4 times to ensure even cooking. I like to cut one of the meatballs open to make sure they are at least almost completely done before moving on to the next step (since they will cook a little more).

For the Broccoli:

  1. If you would like your broccoli roasted, preheat oven to 375 degrees while meatballs are cooking.
  2. Toss chopped broccoli in olive oil, salt and pepper and lay flat on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 8—10 minutes.
  4. (You can also steam your broccoli and the dish will taste great, too!)

To Combine:

  1. While broccoli is in the oven and the meatballs are almost done cooking, combine all brown sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Pour mixture into meatball skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Whisk for 4-5 minutes on a low simmer.
  2. Turn off heat and mix in broccoli. Serve with rice or rice noodles. Enjoy!
