Beef Teriyaki Meatballs

Meatballs are usually an easy dish to make and cook.  You do need to get your hands a little messy, but the result with a homemade teriyaki sauce is really worthwhile,

The pan fried beef meatballs are first cooked then coated and simmered in a homemade teriyaki sauce of garlic, soy sauce, water, ginger and brown sugar which is nicely thickened with corn flour.  Serve as a main meal or appetiser.  Either way you won’t be disappointed with these juicy tender meatballs.

As a main meal, serve with your favourite vegetables or salad.  Equally served with Jasmine rice is also a great option.  There is not a large amount of sauce, but they still mix beautifully with Jasmine rice.

If served as an appetiser, then simply serve with toothpicks.  You may also make a second batch of teriyaki sauce for your guests to dip the meatballs into.

This recipe makes 12 meatballs, so simply double all the ingredients to make an extra amount for a larger family.
