To Make Your Chinese Beef Meatballs…
To get started you will need ground beef, Panko, garlic, sesame oil, ground ginger, an egg, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce and any garnish desired (we used sesame seeds and sliced green onions). You may also want to scale the recipe up or down, depending on how many people you are serving and the size that your meatballs will be. This recipe is for approximately 15 1″ meatballs, however, at the bottom of the recipe box below you can change your desired servings to change the ingredient quantities.
While making the meatballs and sauce, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and grease your baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
For the Chinese Beef Meatballs, combine beef, Panko, garlic, sesame seed oil, ground ginger, and egg in a medium to large mixing bowl. Make sure that the ingredients are thoroughly combined, then shape into 1″ round balls and place on your baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake the meatballs for 10 minutes or until the outside is browned and the inside is no longer pink.
To Make the Hoisin Ginger Sauce…
Combine the Hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seed oil, and ground ginger in a small bowl and set aside until the meatballs are done baking.
Serve your Chinese Beef Meatballs by either dipping them into the Hoisin Ginger Sauce, plating and drizzling the sauce over them, or by placing them in a bowl or container and covering with the sauce (stir them in gently to avoid breaking the meatballs). Enjoy!
