  • Preheat a small skillet to medium-high heat then add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the mushrooms. Season with a little salt. Cook for 5 minutes then remove from the pan and cool.
  • Place the pork in a bowl then add the mushrooms and garlic. Add the coconut aminos or tamari, the egg, and the pepper and mix well. The mixture will be wet.
  • Form 10–12 large, soft meatballs.
  • Heat the 1/4 cup of avocado oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the meatballs, and flash fry them for 2 minutes on each side or until golden in color. Drain them on paper towels.
  • In a deep pot, heat the broth to a boil then add half of the cabbage. Layer in all of the meatballs and the remaining cabbage. The pot should be filled to the top. Place a lid on the pot and simmer for 10 minutes. The cabbage will cook down, then add liquid to the broth.
  • Remove a ladle full of broth to a small bowl and dissolve a tablespoon of arrowroot in it, then return it to the pot.
  • Simmer with the lid off for a minute or two to thicken the broth.
