Teriyaki Meatballs Recipe

These meatballs with an Asian twist are simply delicious. If you don’t like pork, you can use all minced beef. Serve in a bowl with rice or noodles and enjoy them on a winter’s evening. 

Makes 28 small meatballs
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 450g beef mince
  • 450g pork mince
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sriracha or similar hot sauce (optional)
  • 80g breadcrumbs
For the teriyaki sauce:
  • 160ml soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 350ml water
  • 4 tbsp cornflour  
To serve:
  • Sesame seeds
  • Spring onions, chopped
  • Rice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5 and spray a baking tray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the minced beef and pork until just combined. In a small bowl, combine the beaten egg, spring onions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and hot sauce until well combined. Add to the meat along with the breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix as gently and as little as possible until everything is just combined.
  4. Form the mixture into meatballs about 3cm in diameter. Place on the prepared baking tray and bake for 16–18 minutes until the meatballs are just barely cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile, place a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the soy sauce, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, honey and 300ml of the water, then whisk until completely combined.
  6. In a cup, stir together the cornflour and the remaining water.
  7. Bring the sauce to a boil, then remove from the heat. Whisk the cornflour mixture into the sauce, then return to the heat.
  8. Return the sauce to a boil, whisking constantly to avoid lumps, then reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer.
  9. Add the meatballs into the sauce and stir to coat them. Allow the meatballs to simmer in the sauce until heated through.
  10. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spring onions, then serve with rice.
