Easy honey-soy glazed meatballs

Easy honey-soy glazed meatballs

Based on 24 ratings

"These meatballs come together really quickly and make a delicious lunch or dinner. The recipe can also be scaled up easily to serve four or more. The components are really easy but pack a lot of flavor, and the glaze is the key to bringing everything together. You could serve these with rice noodles, or even in a sandwich with some crunchy romaine, cucumber, and herbs, but rice is the classic choice for me!"

  • Step 4/4

    Transfer the meatballs to the preheated oven and bake at 200°C/425°F until cooked through, approx. 8 min., brushing with the honey-soy glaze halfway through. Then turn on the grill function of your oven, brush the meatballs with more glaze, and grill for approx. 3 min., or until the meatballs turn nicely brown on top. Remove from the oven and brush again with remaining glaze. Serve meatballs with rice and garnish with sliced scallion as desired. Enjoy!
