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.

I don't like cooking, and I don't like shopping for food, so until lately I've eaten out - a lot. I've been working on eating more healthful meals, and this week I decided to make food at home using the recipes in a fitness book I've been using. I entered the recipes into Plan to Eat and planned which meals I'll eat for the rest of the week. Super simple, super fun. I went to the grocery store last night, and the app grouped all the things I needed to buy, making shopping painless. Making the recipes is even more fun, because the web app I installed (nice bookmark thing via Safari on iOS) guided me, step-by-step. Plan to Eat is helping me live a more healthful life. Thank you!
