Author Notes: I tweaked the recipe a bit, but it's pretty much the same as what you may find in the original recipe. I just didn't have sesame oil, or chili paste. Instead, I used Sriracha sauce. Oh sweet sweet (hot hot hot) sauce. So good. You maybe bought it before for a recipe, and now is a great time to bust it out again. I also added in about 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs as they weren't coming together as well as I would have liked.goodspoon

Makes: 20 meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup minced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha Sauce
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Add beef, take off any rings you have on, and mix together, adding panko (as much as needed) so that it comes together well.
  2. Heat a cast-iron skillet and add half the meatballs. Let them cook about 3-4 minutes per side, then place on a cooking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake for 7 minutes, until done. Serve over some orzo like we did, and enjoy!
