UD Monday menus!
B: coffee w/heavy cream
D: running errands this morning, may opt for a subway chicken chop salad if we're not back early enough for me to cook. If we are, then maybe a cheeseburger patty (85% beef today for the added calories)and a salad
S: I found a recipe for general tso's meatballs that's low-carb, I'm thinking about trying that, maybe in steamed napa cabbage leaves.
I wish I knew who created this so I could give credit, but it was on pinterest linked to a blogger who said she didn't know where she got it.
So whoever it was, thank you!
For the Meatballs
• 1 lb ground turkey or chicken (I'm using beef today)
• 2 Tbl minced ginger
• 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 1/4 cup almond flour
• 1 egg
• light flavored oil for frying (olive, grape-seed, etc)
For the Sauce
• 1/2 tsp sesame oil
• 3 Tbl rice wine vinegar
• 3 Tbl soy sauce (tamari based for GF, or coconut aminos for Paleo)
• 1/4 cup water
• 3 Tbl sugar substitute (honey for Paleo)
• 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (or arrowroot powder)
• 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
• 4 – 5 small dried chilies, seeded and chopped
To make the meatballs:
• Combine all of the meatball ingredients and mix thoroughly. Form into 16 balls and saute/fry in oil over medium heat until cooked through and crispy. Alternatively you could bake them but they won’t get the crunchy exterior.
To make the sauce:
• Combine the sesame oil, vinegar, GF soy sauce, water, sugar substitute, and xanthan gum in a small saucepan and whisk until combined. Add the scallions and chili pep-per and bring to a boil. Simmer for five minutes until thickened and remove from heat.
• Add the cooked meatballs to the thickened sauce and stir to coat. Garnish with more chopped scallions and chilis if desired.
