Asian Meatballs

Serves 6-8 (about 30 meatballs)

 Meatball Ingredients
  •  2 lbs ground pork or ground beef
  •  2 tsp sesame oil
  •  1 C Panko or breadcrumbs
  •  1/2 tsp ground ginger
  •  2 eggs
  •  3 tsp minced garlic
  •  1/2 C thinly-sliced green onions
  Asian Sauce
  • 2/3 C hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 C rice vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
Garnish
  • chopped green onions
  • sesame seeds
  • sliced, cooked carrots

Preheat oven to 400.

In a large bowl, mix together meatball ingredients until well-combined. Shape into balls (yielded about 30 meatballs), and place in a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until meatballs are golden on the outside and no longer pink on the inside.

While the meatballs are baking, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients until blended. Once meatballs have finished cooking, you can either dip each meatball individually (using a toothpick) in the sauce mixture. Or you can pour the sauce over the meatballs and gently stir them until covered.

Serve with rice and additional garnish if desired.
