Spicy, Sweet and Sour Asian Meatballs

We have an abundance of ground beef that Tims parents gave us a few months ago. Slowly but surely I'm finding new ways to use it up. I honestly love this recipe, the sauce that goes with it makes it even more amazing.


Spicy, Sweet and Sour Asian Meatballs
Recipe adapted from Lisa's Dinnertime Dish

1 tsp ginger, grated and divided
1/3 cup green onions, sliced

1 lb ground beef
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
3/4 cup plum sauce
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons sriracha

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine ground beef, 1/2 tsp of the ginger, green onions, soy sauce, garlic and panko in a large mixing bowl.  Mix until well combined.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine plum sauce, chili sauce and remaining 1/2 tsp ginger.
  • Remove the meatballs from the oven and pour the sauce over the them. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
 

Enjoy!
