  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

In a large pot, sauté the onions and garlic until golden brown. Deglaze with the white wine, stirring around until most of the wine is absorbed.


Add in the marinara and teriyaki and bring to a very low simmer.


To make the the meatballs:


In a large bowl mix together the garlic, onions, beef, parsley, eggs, salt, and pepper.


In a small bowl crumble the bread into the milk and let it absorb the liquid. Pour the whole mixture into the meatball mixture and blend together until incorporated.


Roll out meatballs and place into sauce. Keep mixing around very gently to completely submerge in the sauce. Let simmer 30-40 minutes. Serve over right or pasta.
