Chinese Meatballs with Spicy Sauce


This is so easy and quick to make- 25 minutes and dinner is served. My whole family loves these meatballs. Serves 4

  • 1 lb. ground beef, ground turkey, or ground pork
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 4 green onions, sliced, whites and greens separated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 T. soy sauce, separated
  • 1/2 C. panko crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 T. mayonnaise
  • 2 T. honey
  • 2 T. Sriracha

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the ground meat, ginger, garlic, the whites of the onions, 2 T. of the soy sauce, the panko crumbs, and a good pinch of salt and pepper.  Form the meat mixture into small meatballs, about 1 inch in diameter. This recipe will make about 20 meatballs.  Place the meatballs on a baking sheet and bake until browned and cooked through, about 14-16 minutes. Meanwhile, make the sauce by whisking together the mayonnaise, the other 2 T. of soy sauce, the honey, and the Sriracha. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired. Serve the meatballs over steamed rice with a drizzle of the sauce and the green parts of the onions on top.
