    1/2 tsp black pepper
    Dash of nutmeg
    2 cups beef, chicken or vegetable broth

    In a mixing bowl, combine ingredients for meatballs. Form into 1" balls and place in a skillet with 1 Tbsp coconut oil. Cook meatballs over medium heat for about 15 minutes, turning halfway through, or until cooked completely through. Remove meatballs from skillet.
