Teriyaki Meatballs

On busy weeknights, it nice to have a great tasting meal that is won’t take tons of time or ingredients to make. I make meatballs using ground beef, ground chicken or ground pork depending on the style of meal. These meatballs are so easy to whip up and can be used with a variety of sauces.

For this particular meal, I used ground pork, teriyaki sauce and pineapples for tasty sweet treat. This goes great with fried rice, steamed rice, or I served ours with sauteed cabbage for a lighter meal.

   

  

Teriyaki Meatballs:

1lb. ground pork

1 egg

1/2 cup panko or bread crumbs

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp minced onions

Salt and Pepper to taste

Teriyaki Sauce

1 tbsp corn starch

1 can of drained pineapple tidbits

 

Directions:

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a skillet on medium heat. Mix ground pork, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, onions and salt and pepper until incorporated. Make into little balls. It will be a little sticky, but that is okay. Place into heated skillet, letting brown on each side. Add pineapple.

Mix cornstarch with enough hot water to make a paste. Mix with teriyaki sauce ( I used half a bottle). Add mix to the meatballs and heat on high heat until boiling. Reduce to simmer, allowing sauce to thicken.

Serve over rice or with your choice of veggie. Enjoy!
