Asian Style Meatballs


For the meatballs:

2 1/2 lbs lean ground beef

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tbsp onion powder

2-3 tsp red pepper flakes

4 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

For the sauce:

5 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp mirin

4 tbsp honey

1 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tbsp minced garlic

1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

For the slurry:

1 tsp cornstarch

2 tsp water


Preheat oven to 400° F.

Mix all ingredients of meatballs together & form into balls. Add to parchment lined baking sheet & bake for 10-12 minutes.

While meatballs are baking, mix together all ingredients of the sauce with exception of the sesame oil. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the sesame oil & then the sauce. Heat up, add the slurry, & allow to thicken slightly before transferring meatballs. Stir to coat. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Eat on their own or serve with jasmine rice & sautéed broccoli.
