In a medium bowl, combine ingredients for meatballs, mix with your hands thoroughly. Make meatballs by spooning heaping 1 Tbsp of mixture and rolling between your hands. Lay on a cutting board or plate. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients and set aside.
Preheat large, 12" or larger, skillet or cast iron pan on high, and grease before hand. Add meatballs and cook until brown, for about 2-3 minutes. No need to cook the meatballs through as they will cook fully when simmering. Add the sauce, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes, uncovered. Check that meatballs are cooked. Serve warm with brown rice, quinoa, zuchinni noodles, etc . Add garnish like fresh cilantro, green onions or toasted cashews.
