In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and garlic powder just until combined. Shape into 1" balls (or 24 equal portions) and place on a baking sheet (you can line with parchment for easy clean up).
Bake for 20-25 minutes until browned and internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Set aside.
Make the Orange SauceIn a large skillet, coming the marmalade, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes with a whisk.
Stir together broth and corn starch and add to the skillet. Stir well.
Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook until thickened, about 5-8 minutes. Add meatballs, heat through (not necessary if they just came out of the oven), and serve immediately. You can throw the meatballs plain or with sauce into a freezer bag once cooled and freeze for another use.
