sweet & tangy meatballs

>> Tuesday, March 22, 2011

this normally isn't like me - but i have another asian recipe coming your way! i made these meatballs for my friend's bridal shower this weekend (that post is coming later) as an appetizer. i turned the leftovers into a weeknight dinner by adding brown rice and some veggies. theses little guys were extremely flavorful, moist, and sweet with a kick of spice. the best part is that you cook these in the slow cooker so there is really no cooking involved!

adapted from my recipes
1 lb ground beef, turkey or pork
1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
3 scallions, chopped
1 egg
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/4 cup chinese plum duck sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons hot chili garlic sauce
sesame seeds, for garnish

combine meat, panko, scallions egg, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a large bowl. mix with your hands and form into 1-inch balls.

spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. add meatballs.  in a small bowl, whisk together bbq suace, plum duck sauce, hoisin and hot chili garlic sauce. pour over meatballs and gently stir, making sure to coat each one. cover and cook on low for 3 to 5 hours.

serve over brown rice and your favorite green vegetables - i chose a medley and added a little soy sauce to both. garnish meatballs with sesame seeds and eat up.
