Default Lo Carb and GF Beef Stroganoff Meatballs


I discovered this recipe when I had Gestational Diabetes and it has since been our favorite meatball recipe regardless of diet! There is also a Meatball Parmigiana recipe that is awesome too, she just tweaks the meatball recipe a bit! I always make a double batch of either recipe when I make it. When I do the parmesan meatballs, I don't do her sauce, just add the meatballs to my own! And I bake both recipes of meatballs in the oven for 30 min or so (pan frying seems like a pain to me!)!

A delicious low carb and gluten free meatball recipe based on the classic Beef Stroganoff.

Recipe type: Meatballs
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings (3 meatballs & cup sauce)))

For the meatball mix:
1 lb ground beef (80/20)
1 egg
cup almond flour
1 tsp kosher salt
tsp black pepper
tsp garlic powder
tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp butter (for frying)
For the sauce:
1 Tbsp butter
2 cups sliced mushrooms (white or cremini)
1 cup sliced onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cups beef broth
cup sour cream
tsp xanthan gum
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Combine the meatball ingredients (except the butter) in a medium bowl and mix well. Form into 12 meatballs. Heat the 2 Tbsp of butter in a large, nonstick saute pan. Cook the meatballs on medium heat in the butter until browned on all sides and cooked through (2-3 minutes per side.)
Remove the meatballs from the pan and set aside. Add the 1 Tbsp of butter and the 2 cups of sliced mushrooms to the pan. Cook until the mushrooms are golden and fragrant (4-5 minutes.) Remove the mushrooms from the pan.
Add the onions and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened and translucent.
Remove the onions from the pan.
Add the beef broth to your pan and scrape the bottom to get all the yummy bits off. Whisk in your sour cream and xanthan gum until smooth.
Add the meatballs, mushrooms, onions and garlic back to the pan and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer on low for 20 minutes. Garnish with the fresh parsley right before serving.
