“These Asian flavored hoisin meatballs make a great appetizer and can also be great served as a main dish. Pork meatballs are baked and then dipped in a hoisin sauce glaze. If you would prefer the glaze to be warmed you can bring it to a boil in a saucepan before serving. The glaze uses ingredients such as hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic.” Bobby
2 pounds ground pork (or ground beef)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
½ teaspoon ground ginger
3 teaspoons minced garlic
½ cup green onions (thinly sliced)
Toasted sesame seeds (for garnish)
Sliced green onions (for garnish)
⅔ cup hoisin sauce
¼ cup rice vinegar
2 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
In a large bowl combine ground pork, sesame oil, breadcrumbs, ground ginger, eggs, 3
teaspoons minced garlic, and ½ cup sliced green onions.
Mix together until well combined.
Shape into balls that are about 1-1.5 inches in size (you can make them bigger if you want).
Place meatballs onto a greased baking sheet or in a 9×13” greased baking dish.
Place into the oven and bake at 400°F for 10-12 minutes or until fully cooked (the internal
temperature has reached 165 degrees).
While meatballs are baking, in a medium bowl whisk together hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, 2
minced garlic cloves, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon ground ginger.
If you want the sauce hot, you can heat it up in a medium saucepan.
When the meatballs have finished cooking dips each meatball in the sauce individually using a
toothpick or mix the sauce with the meatballs in a bowl until covered.
Serve warm and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
