This recipe was part of the OTGF’s Urban Farm-a-licious Event, a collaboration between On the Ground Floor and Tested, Tried and True.
This recipe comes from my most favorite food blog in the whole wide world, Damn Delicious. Due to not getting a last minute ingredient we had to find a quick replacement for the Urban Farm-a-licious event. Malika went looking on my personal Pinterest page and found this recipe. She was worried because it had never been tried before. I asked her what blog it was from and when she said it was a Damn Delicious recipe I knew we had nothing to worry about.
My wife loves eating my food, but her eyes go dull when I start talking about recipes, food blogs, or my food gadgets. The first time I made a recipe from Damn Delicious I set the plate in front of my wife, she took one bite and I swear the following came out of her mouth. “Damn! This is delicious!” I knew at that moment I was going to be a regular visitor to the Damn Delicious blog.
One of the things I’m going to do on this blog is do original recipes and “fixes” on recipes I find online after I’ve tested them out. I can say that I always make Chungah’s recipes as stated (except maybe adding more garlic. I ALWAYS add more garlic). So check her out and enjoy these Hoisin Asian Meatballs. They are juicy and tender beef meatballs that are taken to the next level with a sweet hoisin glaze that is flavorful and fun.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 cup Panko
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 large egg
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 green onions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
- Sesame seeds, for garnish
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a aluminum foil; set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine ground beef, sesame oil, Panko, ginger, egg, garlic and green onion.
- Using a wooden spoon or clean hands (I suggest wearing cooking gloves if you prize your manicures like I do!), stir until well combined.
- Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 18-20 meatballs.
- Place meatballs onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until all sides are browned and meatballs are cooked through.
- Whisk together hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger in a small bowl.
- Serve meatballs immediately with hoisin sauce, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds.
- We served these with bamboo toothpicks and it was great as a small bite.
