Besides for the upgraded flavor, one of the best parts of this recipe is that these meatballs bake in the oven, making them an easy dish to cook and serve. They're also versatile and work either as a weekday main or pretty appetizer.
Saucy Asian Meatballs

Prepare the Meatballs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, combine all meatball ingredients. Shape into balls (I made mine about one and a half inches in diameter) and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. The meatballs should be golden on the outside and no longer pink on the inside.
Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger. Whisk together until blended. Add in cornstarch mixture and cook until sauce has thickened.
To serve, place each meatball on a toothpick and dip into the sauce. Or, you can place all the meatballs in a serving dish and pour the sauce over them. Serve warm, and sprinkle with optional garnishes.
