Hoisin-Honey Glazed Cocktail Size Meatballs

Yum


 We're in the midst of the holiday season and festive parties are sure to in everyone's future. I thought these little Hoisin-Honey Glazed Cocktail Meatballs would be a perfect little bite. They are quick and easy and you can make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze them so you're ready at anytime for unexpected guests.  I love the addition of some toasted sesame seeds because they give the perfect little crunch and "nutty" flavor that compliments these sweet, savory and spicy little appetizers.  

Ingredients: 
For the meatballs:
2lbs lean ground meat **I used a combo of chicken and pork
2Tbs of ginger/garlic paste (or 1Tbs of each separately grated)
2Tbs of Soy Sauce
1 Tbs of Chinese Rice Wine (or sherry)
1 tsp of Sesame Oil
 Red Chili Flakes to taste
 Black Pepper to taste
minced green onions (scallions)

For the Glaze:
1/4 cup of Hoisin Sauce
1/8 of  a cup of honey
2 Tbs soy sauce

 Garnish:
toasted Sesame Seeds (optional)

 Directions:
 Mix all the meatball ingredients together and make into walnut size meatballs.






In a frying pan with some canola oik, brown meatballs until cooked through on medium heat.






Add your glaze/sauce and cook the meatballs for a few minutes. 







Toast your sesame seeds in a dry pan until fragrant and sprinkle over the meatballs.  Place a toothpick into each meatball and serve hot.  Enjoy.







Serve hot and enjoy.  Makes enough for a party. :)

  11. I have a recipe similar to this I got from Southern Living years and years ago. Chicen wings before they were a hot item! Yours is a bit simpler and about 20 ingredients less than theirs. I will give this a try. Love your site and unique recipes. Drop by my kitchen for a visit. tumbleweedcontessa.com.

  13. Perfect timing. I am trying to plan the menu for a Christmas party in a couple of weeks and this recipe would be great. Something common with the meat yet different with the flavorings.
