Love meatballs as much as I do?? If so, these Asian Pork Meatballs With Ginger Honey Sauce will become a new family staple! If you read Souffle Bombay they you know just how much I love a good meatball! I seriously think I could write a cookbook filled with meatballs or write a song about them and sing it proudly…the second of the two would be easier for sure, I am one that bursts into random songs quite often and somehow they flow…just ask my kids! I am like a rapper that way…with out the actual rapping skills, one of my few talents haha!
These meatballs are so…so…SOOO delicious! They’re very flavorful, moist, easy to make and will impress anyone whose palate the cross!
When it comes to pork meatballs, I try to not use any filling and that’s part of the key of why they are so stinkin’ good…in my opinion anyway so because of that, as a bonus these Asian Pork Meatballs With Ginger Honey Sauce are gluten free!

- For Spicy Ginger-Honey Sauce
- In a frying pan with sides, combine sesame oil, garlic and ginger and saute for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add in vinegar, honey and chili with garlic sauce and bring to a boil.
