Ingredient Notes

  • Meat: I’ve discovered that utilizing a 50/50 mix of lean floor beef and floor turkey breast leads to very beefy taste general, however with fewer WW Factors and energy. I extremely suggest it!
  • Gochujang: This fermented pink chili paste is a spicy ingredient in Korean dishes. I’ve had no hassle discovering it in my native grocery shops and really used my retailer model (Wegmans) model of it on this recipe. It’s prone to be discovered close to the opposite Asian sauces within the grocery retailer aisles.
  • Panko Bread Crumbs: I like to make use of panko, however should you don’t have it readily available you should utilize common unseasoned bread crumbs or crackers you run by way of the meals processor (could change the diet information and WW Factors).
  • Ginger: Contemporary ginger has a definite taste that provides rather a lot to a recipe! I do suggest utilizing contemporary ginger right here should you can, however I’ve additionally seen jarred minced ginger which can be utilized as an alternative choice to a milder taste.
  • Sesame Oil: I like sesame oil. Slightly little bit of sesame oil provides so a lot taste to recipes, or any meat or veggies you cook dinner in it! It’s undoubtedly value shopping for slightly bottle to maintain in your kitchen!

Serving Concepts

  • On Their Personal: As I discussed above, I believe these meatballs could possibly be nice served on their very own together with your favourite ready Asian sauce for dipping or to drizzle excessive. I tailored this recipe from NY Instances Cooking they usually advisable a dipping sauce of two components soy sauce to 1 half white vinegar. I believe one thing sweeter like a lightweight drizzle of honey or hoisin or teriyaki sauces (I do know, not Korean) can be scrumptious as nicely.
  • In a Rice Bowl: I ate these over white rice with cucumbers, carrots, and a drizzle of chili sauce and sprinkle of sesame seeds excessive. It was scrumptious! I made the chili sauce from this Wellness Mama recipe however used soy sauce as an alternative of coconut aminos and used 1 / 4 of all of the components listed in order that I’d have about 2 teaspoons per serving to drizzle excessive. It was spicy, however labored nicely with the rice and cucumbers reducing the warmth! You would additionally use a store-bought sauce or dressing you want.
  • As a Meatball Slider: You would additionally serve these meatballs on slider buns! Possibly combine slightly mild mayo together with your favourite Asian chili sauce and add some shaved carrots and cucumber slices?
