Grain Free Teriyaki Meatballs
1 pound grass fed ground beef
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 cup sweet potato, grated
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 cup cold water
1/4 cup gluten-free, non-gmo soy sauce or coconut aminos
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp minced ginger
3-5 tbsp honey, depending on desired sweetness
2 tbsp tapioca starch
Preheat oven to 375.
Make teriyaki sauce- in a small sauce pan, combine all ingredients except tapioca starch. Heat over medium heat for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add tapioca starch and cook, continuing to stir, for 3-5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Set aside. You can add more honey as long as the sauce is still hot..
Mix ground beef, diced onion, sweet potato, salt + pepper, and 3 tbsp teriyaki sauce in a large bowl.
Form into meatballs using your hands and place evenly on parchment-line baking sheet.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.
If eating immediately, warm the rest of the teriyaki sauce in a small sauce pan and brush over meatballs.
If meatballs have been made ahead of time, warm them in a medium sauce pan with extra teriyaki sauce.
Serve over cauliflower rice with a side of roasted broccoli.
