Ingredients

  • 1 bag Cooked Perfect Meatballs I use the Homestyle variety
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions

For the sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions

  • Bake the meatballs according to package directions.
  • While the  meatballs are in the oven, prepare the sauce. 
  • Place the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey and sesame oil in a small pot over medium high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Turn up heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water until dissolved. Add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce and boil for 1-2 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  • Remove the meatballs from the oven. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions and serve.
