Asian Meatballs over Carnivore Rice

I love meatballs! So when I went to Good Food Cafe which was a keto restaurant in Madison Wisconsin, I ordered their Asian Meatballs. I told the owner, Kory (which you can watch my interview with him HERE), “These are the BEST meatballs!” He laughed and said, “You should, they are your recipe!” 

My recipe for Asian Meatballs was written many moons ago and is in my first published cookbook. It is so delicious, I had to share my recipe with all of you!


When making the mouthwatering glaze for these meatballs, I highly suggest you use homemade bone broth. Store-bought broth will work but the glaze will not be thick, though adding a small amount of gelatin can help to thicken it but when it cools, it will become very gelatinous. Make sure to reheat the glaze before serving leftovers.


To make my Carnivore Rice and the glaze for the Asian Meatballs, I used Further Food gelatin!

Further Food gelatin and collagen peptides are both excellent sources of collagen. Both their Collagen & Gelatin are sourced from the highest quality, grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone-free, and antibiotic free bovine collagen.

The benefits of collagen and gelatin are astounding! Just eating my delicious carnivore rice helps support skin elasticity & hydration, longer hair & nails, stronger bones & joints, faster recovery between workouts, increased flexibility, improved digestion, and it even keeps you feeling full and satiated for longer!

Further Food Collagen Peptides dissolve instantly in any recipe, and Gelatin Powder naturally thickens recipes like the sauce for the meatballs!

Servings 8 servings
Calories 352.4




  • 2 pounds ground beef 85% lean
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 3/4 cup mushrooms finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons green onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons organic tamari sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ginger freshly grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or smashed


  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup organic tamari sauce
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup allulose (I used brown allulose)
  • 2 tablespoons green onions (finely chopped) plus more for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons ginger freshly grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 teaspoons Further Food gelatin


  • To make the Carnivore Rice, place the eggs into a large greased skillet and whisk in the gelatin and the salt. Allow the gelatin to dissolve for 3 minutes before turning on the heat. 
  • Heat the eggs over medium- high heat and scramble until completely cooked through. Remove from heat and cool completely.  Once cool, place in a food processor to pulse into small pieces of rice (or use a ricer and place the cooked egg whites through a ricer to form pieces of rice). Set aside while you make the meatballs. 
  • NOTE: The Carnivore rice can be made 4 days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to serve. To reheat, place on a lightly greased skillet and saute over medium heat for 2 minutes or until heated through.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, eggs, mushrooms, green onions, coconut aminos, ginger, and garlic. Mix until well combined. Shape into 1½-inch meatballs (I use an ice cream scooper to make sure the meatballs are the same size) and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a small saucepan, combine the broth, coconut oil, tamari, sweetener, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Whisk in the gelatin and allow to sit for 3 minutes or until the gelatin has dissolved. Heat over medium-high heat until bubbling, stirring well to combine. Simmer on medium for 10 minutes while the meatballs cook. Remove from the heat. NOTE: This sauce can be made 4 days ahead and stored in the fridge.
  • Remove from the meatballs from the oven, place on a serving tray, and serve with the sauce. Garnish with sliced green onion.
  • Store extras in separate air tight containers in the fridge for up to 6 days. To reheat, place meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in a 325 degree F oven for 5 minutes or until heated through.

“I have battled being overweight most of my childhood and then being morbidly obese most of my adult life. I started dieting at the age of 8. I did every diet that is out there, including all the popular ones, even Opti fast shakes through a hospital program and numerous weight loss pills. I could lose weight but quickly gained it all back. Twice I lost over 100 lbs with WW. And I was even grinding my own wheat berries, eating 8-10 fruits & vegetables a day! I cooked all my own meals and ate as healthy as I knew how. My diabetes, insulin resistance, PCOS, thyroid, inflammation, depression, arthritis, chronic high blood pressure and high cholesterol kept getting more out of control while the Drs gave me more medication.

Then I found the keto diet through my PA. What did I have to lose?! So I started. I was not eating enough protein at first and yes I lost weight BUT I also was losing muscle.

I found Maria Emmerich 9 months after starting and the knowledge Craig & Maria had was crucial to my understanding how the body works. I increased my protein, started working out with weight training and I never thought I would end up here. I lost 270 lbs, went from a size 6x to a size 12 and lost all the medications except I still take a low dose of thyroid med. I reversed all my health issues!

I have maintained the weight loss for almost 1 1/2 years. I continue to learn from the Emmerichs and continue to help others who struggle as well. I don’t share my story to say “ hey look at me” I share it to show others anything is possible! And to encourage, point others to the knowledge they need to help them be successful and getting healthier.“ Twila
