Ingredients

FOR THE MEATBALLS

1 lb

2 Tbsp
minced ginger
1/4 c
scallions, chopped
1 tsp
fresh garlic, minced
light flavored oil for frying (olive, grapeseed, etc)

3 Tbsp

1/4 c
water
3 Tbsp
honey, pure maple syrup or sugar
1/4 c

4
small dried chilies, seeded and chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the meatballs:
Combine all of the meatball ingredients and mix thoroughly. Form into 16 balls and saute/fry in oil over medium heat until cooked through and crispy. Alternatively you could bake them but they won’t get the crunchy exterior.
2
To make the sauce:
Combine the sesame oil, vinegar, soy sauce, water, honey in a small saucepan and whisk until combined. Add the scallions and chili pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer for five minutes until thickened and remove from heat.
3
To serve:
Add the cooked meatballs to the thickened sauce and stir to coat. Garnish with more chopped scallions and chilis, serve with Basmatic rice if desired.
