Step by Step AIP Teriyaki Noodle Bowl
Start by mixing together the AIP meatballs. Mash up the avocado in there really well. Shape all of the meatballs and brown them on a hot skillet. Then put them in the oven.
Once the meatballs are in the oven, start working on the toppings. Boil your egg and roast your crispy brussel sprouts. The meatballs take the longest to cook, so the rest of the recipe will be done by the time they are too. During this time you want to rinse and drain your noodles.
In the same skillet where you browned your meatballs you’re going to fry your garlic, saute the noodles. In a separate sauce pot you will simmer your teriyaki sauce ingredients. Bloom the gelatin, then whisk it in until dissolved.
Reduce the sauce until it coats a spoon then mix it in with the noodles. Add your toppings like fried garlic, crispy veggies and hard boiled eggs. Then add your meatballs and add more sauce on top!

- In a large bowl mix together, the ground beef with the rest of the meatball ingredients until well combined, the avocado should be completely mixed in with only traces of green specks in the meat, no chunks left. Shape 12 large meatballs.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When it comes to temperature add 2 tablespoons of avocado oil to the skillet and brown 6 meatballs at a time, 2 minutes a side, then transfer to a sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining meatballs and then put them in the oven.
- Bring a small sauce pot full of water to a boil. Put the 4 large eggs, gently in the pot. Boil for 7 minutes, then drain the water and add ice to the eggs, set aside.

- In the same saucepot where you boiled the eggs heat the bone broth with the fish sauce, red wine vinegar, and 2 tablespoons coconut aminos. Bring to a boil and reduce for 10 minutes.
