Plunk the ground round into a mixing bowl and add the next 7 ingredients (through the egg).

Using clean hands, smoosh everything together until it's well blended and then form 1-inch (2.

You should have about 40 of them.

Spray a big skillet with nonstick cooking spray and put it over medium heat.

Add the meatballs and let them brown all over.

Remove them to a plate and pour off the grease.

Add the ketchup and the next 9 ingredients (through the beef broth) into the skillet and whisk it all together over medium heat until it's smooth.

Thicken just a little with guar or xanthan.

Put the meatballs back in the skillet, turning to coat with the sauce, and simmer for 10 minutes.
