Swedish Meatballs

I can't think of Swedish Meatballs without thinking of Ikea. This recipe is even better than Ikea's yummy, mouth-watering Swedish Meatballs.

This recipe is one the whole family will love. No one but you will know that the sauce is healthy. If members of your family are not big on zoodles, no worries, serve their's over rice or noodles with a dollop of sour cream. 

Swedish Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1 large egg
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1-1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/4 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon coconut aminos
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
pinch nutmeg
1 tablespoons avocado oil

For the Gravy:
1/4 cup clarified butter (ghee)
4 tablespoon arrowroot powder
4 cups beef broth
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, coconut flour, onion, garlic, dried parsley, coconut aminos, oregano, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Shape into 1-inch balls. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs, in batches and cook until all sides are browned (about 5 minutes).
Remove to a plate.

To make gravy, melt clarified butter in the skillet.  Whisk in arrowroot powder, and stir for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in broth. Cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened. Stir in salt and pepper, to taste. Add meatballs, until heated through and sauce is thickened (8 minutes). Serve immediately over zoodles; garnish with parsley.
