Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a medium size bowl, combine pork, eggs, psyllium husk, salt, garlic powder, pepper, nutmeg and allspice. Mix until combined.
Roll into 24 large meatballs or 46 small meatballs and spread them evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Heat butter or ghee in a large stainless steel skillet on low heat.
Sprinkle arrowroot or tapioca all over the butter and whisk vigourously to combine. Cook for 30 seconds, whisking continually until bubbly.
Add warm broth over the arrowroot/tapioca slurry and stir to combine. Increase heat to medium, gently stirring.
Add coconut aminos, mustard, and garlic powder and stir to combine. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer baked meatballs to the gravy and simmer and combine everything over low heat. Or serve separately in a gravy bowl and pour over meatballs.
