  • Meatballs
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 TBS minced sweet or red onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 TBS sesame oil
  • Kosher salt & pepper
  • Ginger Garlic Sauce
  • 3 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 TBS minced ginger
  • 1 1/2 TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1-2 TBS Chili with Garlic Sauce depends on how much you enjoy heat
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • Cilantro for garnish


  • For Meatballs:
  • Combine all ingredients together and form balls. They will be wet. It's fine, just get them to hold together. Place on a baking sheet until ready to cook.
  • When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Use a small amount of olive or grapeseed oil (2-3 TBS or so) to fry the meatballs until nicely browned. Place on a baking sheet and bake another 10 minutes until cooked through.
  • 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. Add in cornstarch and whisk until combined and thickened. Taste & adjust. Place meatballs in your pan, coat with sauce, garnish with cilantro leaves (if you like)and serve.
