Ingredients

For Meatballs

Glaze

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with foil, set aside.
  • In a large mixing bow, add all ingredients for meatballs, mix until just combined. Don't overmix or the meatballs will be tough.
  • Roll mixture into 24 meatballs. Using a cookie scoop makes it easy to get evenly sized meatballs. Place 12 meatballs on each baking sheet. Transfer to oven and bake 10-15 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, make the glaze. Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar and gochujang in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Whisk together until combined. Continue to cook and whisk occasionally until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Don't allow sauce to boil, reduce heat if needed.
  • When meatballs are done, remove from oven. Brush with glaze. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions if desired, and serve.

Notes

Meatballs can be frozen.  If you plan on freezing them, do not brush with the glaze.  Allow meatballs to cool completely.  Place meatballs on a baking sheet, then freeze them for at least 30 minutes.  Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag.  After thawing, prepare the glaze and coat meatballs with glaze.
