Used this as a starting point recipe & the final one turned out great! Used ground turkey...sautéed the whites of the scallions, the ginger and the garlic in toasted sesame oil and deglazed with a little soy sauce before adding to meatball mix... baked meatballs at 400 for 25... sauce was a little bland so I sautéed more scallions, Garlic and ginger in toasted sesame oil and deglazed with more soy sauce before mixing in with sauce and cooking til thickened a bit. Tossed baked meatballs in pan with sauce and cooked covered for a bit and it was delicious.
It was pretty easy to put together - i used frozen meatballs instead. Was definitely ready in the 4 hour. Flavor was ok, but not amazing. Nice quick appetizer for a party!
Excellent week night dinner. I baked them in the oven instead of using the crockpot. Also, I didn't have any plum sauce, so I used orange marmalade instead. It turned out fine.
Sounds yummy but what kind of barbq sauce do you use?
These meatballs are amazing! I baked my meatballs and heated sauce in pan on stove and then combined. Perfect! Making again this weekend!
The recipe seemed promising but we found the flavor of the sauce to be too overwhelming. I won't make this again.
This was an easy recipe! The entire family, including a 16 month old, LOVED it! My only sad news is that someone put ground veal by the ground pork.. and i just grabbed one... so.. I made mine with veal. I will say that the meatballs were ABSOLUTELY amazing and buttery. I served these on brown rice, with a side of Fresh snow peas that i quickly sauted in Unsalted butter, 2 TBS of Soy Sauce, and a TBS of the Hoisin Sauce.. It was PERFECT! We will be making this recipe for years to come! Thanks!
This was a great recipe, one of the few my whole family likes. I used pork stew bits instead of ground pork because my local store doesn't sell ground pork. I serve d this with rice and snow peas. My 2 1/2 yr old daughter hates rice and still ate it. It was full of flavor and really filling! I will make this again and again.
This was great. Super easy to make, and the meatballs were done after 3 1/2 hours, and still moist and tender. I didn't have any ginger on hand, but next time I make it I will include it because I think it would be great in this. I served with brown rice, and mixed veggies with a little soy sauce. Definitely making this again.
This recipe was outstanding. The meatballs were cooked perfectly after about 4.5-5 hours. The sauce was delicious, very flavorful. I would definitely make this again; served it with brown rice and a Japanese vegetable mix.
I used a pork/beef mixture, pan-seared the meatballs prior to slow-cooking, and added pan gravy, orange marmalade, and hot sauce to the sauce mixture. Delicious, and the ginger flavor came out even more in the leftovers the next day.
I made this recipe for a friend who just had a baby and it was rave reviews all around, even her two-year old was enjoying them. I don't normally use ground pork, but the flavor of the meatballs was great. I think I will try again with beef, since this is what I normally have on hand. The prep was very easy and I didn't make any menu modifications. However, I had forgotten this was a slow cooker recipe when I went to make it, so I ended up pan-frying the meatballs and then adding the sauce. Turned out fantastically. Served with pork fried rice and corn.
I don't have a slow cooker and I don't eat pork. I tweaked the recipe and used grass-fed beef and made in in a fry pan on the stove top. My entire family (husband, 2 1/2 year old son and myself) have enjoyed this recipe with sugar snap pea pods over brown rice twice. I have made one additional recipe and placed it in the freezer for a quick meal one night in the future. My son ate 8 1" meatballs, brown rice and peapods along with strawberries as a fruit. He couldn't get enough. Great combinations.
I don't know where to begin but this recipe was horrible. No flavor and my family couldn't eat it. Ended up throwing away. Plus, 5 hours on low was WAY TOO long. The meatballs were dry and over-cooked.
