Asian Hoisin Meatballs

Asian Meatballs with Hoisin Sauce

Yummy Asian Meatballs with Hoisin Sauce! Yes please! So, the other day I was debating on what to cook with the hamburger meat I had set out. On my meal plan I had had meatloaf, but for some reason I actually wasn’t in the mood for meatloaf, neither was my son.. who by the way is a super picky eater. Lord help the parents of picky eaters, it is a daily struggle I tell you!

So, I went to Pinterest like I always do to find some sort of inspiration for my debacle. I didn’t want the usual ground beef dishes we have had in the past but I also didn’t want something that was overly complicated or had a ton of ingredients. It doesn’t matter how great a recipe looks, if it has a billion and one ingredients, I won’t touch it.I came across these Hoisin Asian Meatballs and they intrigued me, so I checked to see if I had all the ingredients…to my surprise I did! If you want the original recipe you can find it HERE, but to me the original had a bit too much Hoisin for my liking. It really overpowered the dish, so I made a few changes to the sauce.I just love experimenting with sauces, it makes me feel like a “real” chef hehe. Every time I try a recipe, I always make the recipe as is and then I tweak it to my families’ liking. Usually, its more salt/pepper/garlic or less spice etc.. For this recipe I added a bit more meat because the 1lb it called for was just not going to feed my hungry family of 5. BTW how cute are these towels? I just got some for my toddler

Back to the recipe, I know I know you’re probably wondering why is this woman talking so much. I assure you I have a method to my madness. I just want you to know why I changed the original recipe so much and you yourself can always try both and see which one suits your fancy. I would love to hear about your experiences in the comments! Here’s my recipe for Hoisin Asian Meatballs.
