Paleo Salisbury Steak....balls

I wanted to create a paleo version of a Salisbury steak and decided to just make them into meatballs.  After all, Salisbury steak is just hamburger made into a patty and kids like meatballs better anyways.  So this is what I got people!!  The kids LOVED them and I really enjoyed them also.  If you prefer not to use the paleo version of my recipe, you can substitute out the almond meal/flour for bread crumbs and arrowroot starch for cornstarch in equal amounts.

This is a paleo & clean eating option.

Paleo Salisbury Steak....balls

1 tablespoon EVOO
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup almond meal
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 can mushroom stems and pieces (or 1 cup fresh sliced)
1 medium onion chopped
2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
2 cups beef broth

Combine beef, almond meal, egg, salt and pepper and shape into 1 1/2 inch balls.  Put EVOO in a skillet and add the meatballs.  Rolling them over to cook evenly on all sides.  Once they're cooked through remove from the skilled and put in a bowl.  Leave the meat pieces and fat (fat is good for you people) in the skillet and add the onion and mushrooms.  Saut√© until onion is translucent then add the arrowroot starch mixing well.  Whisk in the beef broth and return meatballs to pan covering with the lid for about 10 more minutes to thicken the sauce and reheat the meatballs.  Stir every so often.  You can serve these over mashed potatoes or just with a side of Bacon Asparagus and Salt & Pepper Sweet Potatoes like we did.
