Another quick, easy, and delicious AIP ground beef dinner for you. These Asian inspired meatballs would be great alongside some cauliflower fried rice for a more complete meal. Here's a tip: make a big batch and keep some in the freezer for an even quicker easy AIP meal in the future. You could even make a little extra sauce then serve the meatballs and sauce on top of some sweet potato starch noodles or spaghetti squash and garnish with chopped green onion.
