Asian Style Meatballs


When we go to Costco, I buy those frozen meatballs. I like having them as a back up meal, when I have those  lazy days to cook. There are just so many recipes you can do with it. I once packed a meatball marinara sub for hubby's lunch, he said ..it was sooo good and perfectly rounded in shape!  Few days later , he saw the frozen meatballs in our freezer and teased me about how I got him fooled with the perfectly rounded shaped meatballs..Ha!  I still love making homemade meatballs , well..it is not splendidly round but It is superb in flavor. So let's begin..




Ingredients :

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp vegetable oil ( or canola)
2 tbsp soysauce
1/2 cup fine Homemade Breadcrumbs ( unseasoned) Click here to see how I make my own breadcrumbs -- just skip the seasonings.
1 lightly beaten egg.
1/2 cup Homemade Sweet Teriyaki Sauce


Directions:

Pre heat your oven to 400 F

Prepare your Teriyaki sauce. ( Homemade Sweet Teriyaki Sauce)


In a separate small bowl , combine your sesame oil , soy sauce and vegetable oil. Set Aside.


 Mix in your onions and cilantro with the ground turkey. Mix by hand ( it is much more domesticated...)

   
Mix in your lightly beaten egg.


Breadcrumbs and the oil mixture you made earlier.


Arrange the meatballs into a lightly oiled baking sheet . I used a parchment paper instead. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until browned.

Let it slightly cool and use the Homemade Teriyaki Sweet sauce as a  dipping sauce.

It is really good. Our girls and my dear husband loved it with rice!

See? someday I can make a perfectly shaped meatballs..for now..the flavor is perfect!


Happy eating..

  1. They looks so very yummy! I am guessing the key is to use fresh spices, is that right?
