Tangy Asian Meatball Recipe! (so yummy)

asian meatballs ig

I had a little neighborhood get-together yesterday. I wanted to bring something extra tasty.

And I love mini meatballs at parties. But I wanted to put a spin on traditional meatballs. So I made some Asian Meatballs. I was hoping to have some left over for the next night’s dinner. But guess what?? They were all eaten up super fast. And that makes me happy – they were so good!

  2. Looks yummy! I did have to google scallions! I’m in the UK and we call them spring onions! I will try this week!

  3. These look great and I’ll be making them tonight. I’m wondering if you put sesame seeds or another type of seed in the sauce? The picture looks like their may be seeds in the molasses mixture. Thanks!

  4. These sound delicious! My family loves Asian food, and my husband is on a no-red-meat diet, so this recipe is just perfect! Thanks so much for sharing! I am going to pin this recipe to my Pinterest recipe board!

  8. I think I had these at a christmas party last year. They were absolutely incredible. The catering staff had a real hard time keeping them available.
