Saucy Asian Meatballs

Meatball Ingredients:
2 lbs. ground pork or ground beef
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 cup Panko or breadcrumbs (we used gluten free)
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 eggs
3 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup thinly-sliced green onions
optional garnish: toasted sesame seeds, sliced scallions

Asian Sauce Ingredients:
2/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. ground ginger

To Make the Meatballs:
In a large bowl, mix together meatball ingredients until well-combined. Shape into balls (I made mine about 1.5 inches, which yielded about 35 meatballs, but 1 inch is probably standard).

The Quicker Method:
Preheat oven to 400 and place on a greased baking sheet or in a 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until meatballs are golden on the outside and no longer pink on the inside.

In The Slow Cooker:
Place meatballs in slow cooker and turn on high for about 4 hours. 

With Either Method:
While the meatballs are cooking, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients until blended. Once meatballs have finished cooking, you can either dip each meatball individually (using a toothpick) in the sauce mixture. Or you can pour the sauce over the meatballs and gently stir them until covered. Serve warm, and sprinkle with additional garnish if desired. I served mine with rice.
