These Teriyaki Meatballs are sweet, salty, tangy, and so incredibly moist and addictive.  The garlic, ginger, scallion, red bell pepper, and soy sauce all infuse the meatballs with the most amazing flavor.  Combined with a simple Garlic & Ginger Soy Veggie Stir Fry and served over rice noodles, it’s a perfect family dinner.  Drizzle over or dip the meatballs in the tangy Teriyaki mustard sauce and they burst with even more flavor.

Getting Kids to Try New Flavors

It can be hard to get kids to try new flavors.  But sometimes using familiar foods to introduce new flavors works wonders.  Enter meatballs!  What kid doesn’t like a good meatball, right?  I encourage you to experiment with different flavors and sauces.  I have tried sweet & sour, apple, chipotle, and other flavors, but these Asian meatballs are a favorite because they are unexpected, fun, and just plain delicious!

Here are some other Meatball recipes you can try at home for dinner!

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

For this recipe, I used a mini food processor for the ingredients for the meatballs. 

For the stir fry, I used my absolute favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan, which is great because food really does slide right off with minimal oil and I don’t have to worry about food sticking and burning.  It comes with a glass lid, which is perfect for watching your dinner cook!.

Lastly, you will also need a large sheet pan (I use a 17×11) for baking the meatballs.

PREP-AHEAD FOR YOUR TERIYAKI MEATBALLS DINNER 

You are busy, so these are the steps you can do a day or two in advance to prepare food ahead!  (See the recipe below for more details)

In terms of Prepping ahead, you can make the meatballs and store them raw for a day or two in the fridge or freeze them raw up to 3 months ahead!  You can prep the veggies and make the Teriyaki Mustard Dipping Sauce 1-4 days in advance.  

Let’s start with the veggies.  You can really use whatever veggies you have in the fridge for this stir fry.   I used carrots and broccoli, but you can use celery, zucchini, cabbage, red or green pepper, onions, and more.  Cut the carrots into thin strips and the broccoli into small florets.

Let’s move on to the meatballs.  Peel the garlic. Coarsely chop garlic and scallions and ¼ of the red pepper.  Save some thinly sliced greens from the scallions for garnish if you like.

Peel the ginger. You can scrape the skin off with a spoon, use a peeler or simply cut off the skin. Chop the ginger (the blender will do the rest).
Into the food processor, put the garlic, scallion, red pepper, ginger, chili pepper flakes, and the soy sauce. Pulse for 30 sec, scrape down the bowl and process 1 minute more, or until finely ground.

I use a tablespoon to scoop out the right amount of meat and then roll in a meatball.  Roll meat into 24 balls each about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. TIP: score the meat in half, then each in half again, then again to give you 8 equal portions of meat. Then roll 3 balls from each of the 8 portions to give you 24 same-size balls.

At this point, you can move on to cooking the meatballs or storing them in the fridge or freezer.  If you want to freeze them, lay them all out on a sheet pan to freeze and then transfer them to a freezer storage bag once frozen.  

COOK YOUR TERIYAKI MEATBALL DINNER

Make the rice noodles by bring a large pot of water up to a boil. Add the rice noodles to the boiling water and push them down to submerge. Stir the noodles as they soften and cook for 5 minutes until the desired texture. Drain and rinse under hot water. Place back in the pot until ready to serve.

While the rice noodles and the meatballs are cooking, make the veggie stir fry.  Preheat a large skillet on high and add a tbsp of olive oil and the Carrots. Cook the carrots for about 5 minutes, then add the broccoli, garlic, and ginger.  Stir so that they do not burn and cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to soften.

Potato Perfection.  That’s what we have here.  Crispy, salty, slightly spicy potato PER-FEC-TION!  My Patatas Bravas Recipe with Chorizo and a creamy Paprika Aioli is an easy, indulgent, and utterly delicious savory treat that you really must try this week!  Our friends in Spain really know how to do it up!  My version takes spicy chorizo that’s been seared and rendered in a pan so all of the wonderful fat comes out.  The potatoes can then go for a dip and get super crispy and flavorful in that chorizo goodness.  Spanish Paprika is the main flavor here and it is simply heaven!  It’s smokey, spicy, and warm.  Top everything off with a creamy, tangy, slightly spicy Paprika Aioli and that’s how you get potato perfection!

Paprika!

Paprika is made from ground dried peppers that range from sweet to hot. Not only does it add a beautiful red color and peppery flavor, it has benefits for your health! Paprika is a great source of antioxidants and can help eye health. If you go for the hot paprika, then the capsaicin that gives the heat also has anti-inflammatory benefits.

So, put Paprika on EVERYTHING! Try it in my Hungarian Paprika Chicken!  Here are some of the great ways to incorporate paprika into food: Sprinkle over avocado toast, mix into cooked quinoa or rice, season raw meats or fish with it, add it to sauces or soups or stews, sprinkle over veggies before grilling, and so much more!

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

Nothing special for this one! Just a large sheet pan (I use a 17×11) and a large skillet/frying pan. I use my absolute favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan, which is great because food really does slide right off with minimal oil and I don’t have to worry about food sticking and burning.  It comes with a glass lid, which is perfect for watching your dinner cook!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR PATATAS BRAVAS RECIPE COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

 For this recipe, you can roast the potatoes ahead in the oven and then when you are ready to eat, you can cook the chorizo and crisp up the potatoes in the skillet!

Wash the potatoes and leave the skin on. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces, generally about an inch. Add the potatoes to large sheet pan. I like to cover the pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up, but it’s not necessary.

Drizzle with olive oil and then sprinkle the salt, black pepper, and paprika.

Rub the seasoning all over the potatoes using your hands making sure each pieces is coated. Then spread into a single layer and roast in a 400 F degree oven on the center rack for 30 minutes. When they are done, you can cool them off and store them in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to finish cooking.

While the potatoes are cooking, you can also prep the chorizo.  Chorizo comes in a few different variations.  You will find fully cooked sausage, raw sausage, and dry-cured.  For this recipe, you will not want dry-cured.  You can get either the fully cooked or raw sausage, both of which will likely have a casing that you will want to remove.  I used a fully cooked chorizo.

If it’s raw, don’t worry about breaking up the meat until it cooks. If it is cooked, break it up into chunks. Store sealed in the fridge until ready to cook.

Finally, prepare the Paprika Aioli Sauce by adding the mayonnaise to a mixing bowl, then adding the garlic powder and paprika. Mix to combine and store covered in the fridge.

COOK YOUR PATATAS BRAVAS RECIPE! 

Preheat a large skillet on high. The chorizo has a lot of delicious fat, so you probably don’t need additional oil if you are using a non-stick skillet. But you can always add a drizzle of olive oil if desired.

Add the chorizo to the hot skillet. If raw, break it up with a spatula into bite-size pieces. Let it sear and start to render the fat.

Once it is fully cooked and/or seared, remove it it using a slotted spoon or spatula, leaving the fat behind.

Add the potatoes to the chorizo fat and stir to coat with all of that yummy flavor! Maneuver the potatoes into a single layer so that each potato is touching the skillet and then let them sear to get crispy for a few minutes. Once one side is crispy, you can flip them to get the other side crispy.
