Method

Korean Glazed Meatballs 5 Steps

  • Step 1

    Finely chop the mushrooms, onion and scallions. In a medium sized bowl, combine all the meatball ingredients by hand until evenly dispersed.

  • Step 2

    Shape the mixture into about 1 1/4"-inch balls. Dredge the meatballs in the cornstarch or flour to lightly coat.

  • Step 3

    Heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a pan over medium heat. Add half of the meatballs to the pan. Turning as necessary, fry until all sides are golden brown but not cooked through, about 5 minutes. The meatballs will finish cooking in the sauce. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining meatballs.

  • Step 4

    Add all the sauce ingredients to another pan. Boil over medium heat until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 3 – 4 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Add the meatballs to the sauce and simmer until the sauce becomes a thick glaze, turning to coat evenly, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the optional garnish. Serve warm with your choice of vegetables.
