Steam rising ..... not really a bad pic. ;)

So good to be able to make something like this again!  We have our own low-carb “honey” which is pretty good used in certain dishes. I used sugar-free honey.  You can get this either at Wal-Mart or Amazon, called Honey Tree® or they have one called Nature’s Hollow® which uses xylitol instead of maltitol which is in the Wal-Mart honey, which can be problematic for some people.

2.2 lbs ground beef, (1 kg)
1 tbsp coconut flour (15 mL)
2 eggs
11/2  tsp salt (7 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (2 mL)
1/cup sugar-free  “honey”, OR this one (75 mL)
1 tbsp soy sauce, optional (15 mL)
1 tbsp butter (15 mL)
1 tbsp crushed garlic (15 mL)
Sugar-Free Ketchup:
6 oz can tomato paste (170 g)
1/cup water (125 mL)
1 tbsp lemon juice (15 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia)  to equal 2 tsp sugar (10 mL)
1/tsp onion salt (2 mL)
1/tsp garlic powder (1 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (1 mL)

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a sheet pan with foil.  Grease the foil. 

In large bowl, combine ground beef and coconut flour.  In small bowl, whisk together eggs, salt and black pepper.  Add to ground beef and stir well to combine.  Form 2 tablespoonfuls (30 mL) and place on prepared sheet pan.  Bake 17 to 20 minutes.

Sugar-Free Ketchup:  In small bowl, combine tomato paste, water, lemon juice, liquid sweetener, onion salt, garlic powder and black pepper.  Stir in sugar-free “honey” and soy sauce, if using.

In frying pan in butter, and over medium heat, cook garlic until turning fragrant.  Add the sugar-free Ketchup.  Add meatballs, spooning sauce over them, and simmer over low heat 3 to 5 minutes, or until sauce thickens sufficiently.
