Another Hawaiian recipe I have from the past! Teriyaki is a Japenese style of cooking. Often meatball appetizers are coated in sauce, but these stand on their own and can be served with toothpicks. I have made the meatballs, without the liquids, and then very slowly simmered them in the liquid. Baking is easier!
