THM S General Tso’s Meatballs

Shared by: LoriLeeke

Ingredients

  • 2 lb lean ground turkey
  • 4 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced (half for meatballs; half for sauce)
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • olive oil for sautéing meatballs
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 6 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons Bragg's liquid aminos/soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon Glucomannan Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • rice for serving

Directions

General Tso’s Chicken is a popular Chinese takeout dish that consists of fried chicken chunks in an addicting sauce that is both sweet and spicy. This recipe all the flavors of the classic dish and jammed them into these little balls of poultry bliss! You can use ground chicken or turkey for the most authentic flavor, but ground pork would also work well.

To make the meatballs:

Combine all of the meatball ingredients and mix thoroughly. Form into balls and sauté 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 pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer for five minutes until thickened and remove from heat.

To serve:

Add the cooked meatballs to the thickened sauce and stir to coat. Garnish with more chopped scallions and chilis if desired.

As result of using Plan to Eat, I've started planning meals a month at a time, which allows me to do one major grocery shopping trip a month and then a brief 5-10 minutes weekly to pick up produce and dairy. There is now zero stress when it comes to what I am feeding my family, grocery shopping and meal prep. I know exactly what we're going to eat and when I need to prepare what item. If I am not in the mood for a meal the next day, I just switch it by dragging and dropping with another day later in the month.

This is the best meal planning website I think I have ever seen. Its shopping list is the best I have ever seen. Seriously... you have to check this out. I almost NEVER talk about products or websites. So that tells you how much I love this one!

I've looked at other meal planning sites but most that I've seen have their own recipes and I really like to use my own. I love the fact that your site allows you to add recipes from anywhere and it's so quick and easy! Your site has everything that I could have wanted in a meal planning site. You really have thought of everything. I love that you can filter recipes, place recipes in queue for future meal planning and the drop and drag makes things so easy. The shopping list feature is amazing as well...I love that I always have my list with me on my Smartphone!

Love, love, LOVE your site! Not only are we cooking more and eating out less, we are actually staying at or UNDER our grocery budget EVERY week! Thank you!! I've used those other menu plan sites, the ones that give you a menu and grocery list and, while they were helpful, nothing compares to Plan to Eat! I love that I can put in all the recipes that my family already loves, I can plan my menu based on what I already have on hand and I can add recipes SO easily!!
