Thanks Katrena Besich for sharing this super star recipe from www.lifesambrosia.com! Holy meatballs this is some good stuff! Such amazing flavors and the meatballs are so tender! This recipe only serves 4 so I doubled mine to feed my family of 5 and have some leftovers for the hubby to take to work. Teriyaki Meatballs
For the Meatballs:
1 pound ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, diced
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon kosher salt (I would even add half that, it doesnt need all of it)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon hot oil (I couldnt find this at the store and it tasted great without it)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, in a bowl. Mix well. Form into about 20 meatballs.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 6 minutes, they will finish cooking in the sauce. Depending on the size of your pan you made need to do this in batches.
For the sauce:
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cup teriyaki marinade (I like Veri Veri Teriyaki because it has sesame seeds in it)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon siracha sauce (optional)
Combine in a bowl. Once the meatballs have browned, return all of them to the pan. Pour sauce over and gently stir to coat. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
I served these over jasmine rice and topped with a little green onion, but now that I am thinking about it, you can stick them with toothpicks and they might also be a good appetizer. EnJOY!
