Teriyaki Meatballs over Rice

Got the inspiration for this recipe here

For the Meatballs:
1 pound ground pork
1 large egg
½ cup plain breadcrumbs
1 clove garlic, minced
2 inches fresh ginger

½ tsp soy sauce
2 whole green onions
freshly cracked black pepper

for the Glaze:
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup water
½ Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 inches fresh ginger
2 Tbsp corn starch
1 Tbsp sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Grab a baking sheet and cover it with foil, and spray the foil with Pam non-stick spray, set aside. (helps the meatballs not stick to the foil)

Place the ground pork in a large bowl.

Peel the ginger and then grate it

Then mince the garlic, chop the green onions, and add them to the bowl with the ground pork.

Then add the egg,

soy sauce,

and black pepper.

Mix everything together really well until everything is evenly combined, I just used my clean hands to mix everything together.

Roll the meatball mixture into small balls (about a tablespoon) you should get about 30 meatballs.

as you roll the meatballs place them on the foil covered baking sheetDSC_0021-1

when you are done rolling all the meatballs, Place the sheet pan in your preheated 400 degree oven until they are golden brown about 30-35 minutes. I recommend checking them at 15 minutes and turning them over . (I did not do this the 1st time and I ended up browning one side of the metballs, more than the other side. So I flip them balls over)

While the meatballs are in the oven, cook your rice according to the package directions, once it’s done, set aside.

While the meatballs are in the oven, and your rice is cooking also prepare the teriyaki glaze.

Grab a medium sauce pan and turn it to medium low heat and combine the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Then Peel and grate the ginger into the pan. Heat until the brown sugar is dissolved.

Dissolve the cornstarch in just enough water to make it pourable.

Pour that into the pan with the other ingredients. Now turn the heat up to medium high heat, stir and cook until thickened.

Once the sauce has thickened, add the sesame seeds.

When your meatballs are all baked pull them out of the oven and then transfer them into the pot with the glaze.

Stir to coat.

Fluff the rice with a fork.

Grab a bowl and place a spoonful of rice (or 2-3) and desired amount of meatballs and extra glaze. Then top with the chopped green onions.

Perfection!
