create meatballs:- For a 9x13 baking dish, oil the bottom and preheat to 400 degrees F.

Combine ground beef, egg, coconut aminos, arrowroot, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, and green onion in a large bowl. Mix the meat with your hands until barely mixed.

Step 2

Put 1.5-inch round meatballs on the baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes until cooked through and gently browned on the sides.

Step 3

meanwhile, make the sauce:- Whisk all 'for the sauce' ingredients in a small bowl until well blended. Set aside until meatballs are done.

Step 4

finish the meatballs:- After browning and cooking, take the meatballs from the oven but leave it on. Carefully place cooked meatballs on a paper towel-lined dish with tongs.

Throw away the grease in the bottom of the baking dish and gently wipe the inside with a paper towel.

Step 6

Return the cooked meatballs to the dish and pour sauce over them. Put back in the oven and simmer for 8 minutes to thicken the sauce.
