Asian Meatballs are a fun and flavorful way to kick off Christmas dinner. Mix in fresh snap peas for more color and crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Make meatballs: Preheat oven to 375ºF. Mist a large, rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine all meatball ingredients and mix gently but thoroughly with your fingers. Using wet hands, shape mixture into 1 1/4-inch balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, until meatballs are slightly browned on the outside, shaking pan occasionally.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine all sauce ingredients except scallions, stirring well. Place meatballs in slow cooker, pour sauce over and stir gently. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Turn heat to warm setting and serve meatballs directly from slow cooker or, alternatively, transfer meatballs to a serving platter or bowl. Garnish with scallions and serve.

Next time I will cut down on the barbecue sauce because, even with the addition of all the other sauces, the meatballs basically tasted like they were in barbecue sauce. Tasty, but not what I was hoping to achieve. Served over brown rice.
