Sweet and Spicy Korean Meatballs

These Sweet and Spicy Korean Meatballs will change your life. They're made with lean beef, flavored with garlic and Sriracha sauce, baked without the hassle of frying and glazed with a spicy apricot glaze.
  • For Meatballs
  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • For Spicy Apricot Glaze
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add all the meatball ingredients and mix with your hands to combine. Form the meatballs into small 1 inch balls. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until done to your liking.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk together all the glaze ingredients. Add the meatballs and toss well until all the meatballs are glazed.
  4. Garnish with chopped chives if preferred and serve immediately over cooked rice or as an appetizer.
