All you need for these Asian-inspired meatballs is ground pork or beef, sesame oil, panko or dry breadcrumbs, fresh ginger, an egg, fresh garlic, green onions, hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce.

Recipe Notes

  • Freeze these meatballs for a quick meal or appetizer later.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine all the meatballs ingredients. Mix well. Shape into meatballs. Put the meatballs into a 13x9-inch baking dish. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes (depending on size) or until browned and cooked through.
  2. While the meatballs cook, combine all the sauce ingredients.
  3. When the meatballs are cooked, either pour the sauce over them and cook a few more minutes in the oven or remove the meatballs and serve with toothpicks with the sauce on the side. For a main dish, serve over rice.
