Saucy Teriyaki Meatballs


Saucy Teriyaki Meatballs are bursting with flavor in an easy recipe that comes together with just a few ingredients. The whole family is going to love 'em. Simple recipe, awesome meatballs!

We are so happy to have partnered with Soy Vay® to bring you this quick and simple recipe. You can thank us both as you devour these Awesome Saucy Teriyaki Meatballs.

The real key to simple cooking is using the right ingredients. When you are only using a handful of ingredients getting the most bang for your buck is really important. That is one of the many reasons that I love this Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade. It is bursting with flavor and really makes dinner so much easier. Not to mention I love that it has no preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors. Score!

I have been craving those Asian flavors that I love so much, you know the ones I mean soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame and scallions. Pretty much anything you add them too becomes an amazing Asian inspired dish. My picky crew is really crazy about meatballs! So I figured if I whipped up some delicious Teriyaki Meatballs it would be a win for everyone. And was I ever right.

Don't worry about having to search all over the internet for a special ingredient either. Soy Vay® is located right in the Asian section at your Walmart store. Score another one for simple shopping and cooking!

When I started putting this recipe together my ingredient list was so long and that is never good. Then I realized that if I just put the teriyaki right into the meatballs I can make dinner much simpler AND tastier! Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teriyaki has ginger, garlic, sesame oil and seeds in it already. So, I took those off my list. What could be easier? The entire meal comes together in just 30 minutes and is delicious served over steamed vegetables or rice.

These teriyaki meatballs are unlike anything I have ever tasted. They are bursting with flavor and are amazing on their own. I mean seriously the best ever teriyaki meatballs. But, we are a sauce loving family so I whipped up an amazing teriyaki sauce to go with the meatballs..

It is so simple because the teriyaki sauce is a stand-alone with the garlic, ginger and sesame. So, it really knocks it out of the park. I added some pineapple juice for added sweetness and then some corn starch to really thicken it up. We devoured the whole thing. So, no matter how you decide to eat them, you are going to love them! Again and again.


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Saucy Teriyaki Meatballs

Meatball Ingredients
1 pound lean ground beef (I used 88%)
1 pound ground pork
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade
3 scallions, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Sauce Ingredients
1/2 cup Soy Vay® Veri Teriyaki Marinade
6 ounces pineapple juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Optional: sesame seeds and additional scallions for garnish

Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all meatball ingredients. Mix well, do not over mix or you will have tough meatballs.

Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, portion out meat and place on baking sheet.  After all meatballs have been scooped onto tray, roll into balls.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until light golden brown and cooked through.

Meanwhile in a 10" skillet warm teriyaki sauce over medium heat. Combine pineapple juice and cornstarch in a resealable container. Cover and shake to combine. Add juice mixture to sauce. Whisk to combine. Cook on medium heat until sauce begins to thicken.

Remove meatballs from oven and transfer to skillet. Toss meatballs in sauce. Serve and enjoy.

DONNA'S NOTES: If you lightly wet your hands the meatballs will form better and crack less.

These meatballs are amazingly flavorful without the sauce. If you are cutting back feel free to serve without the sauce. I have really enjoyed the meatballs without the sauce in veggie wraps.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Can be served as an appetizer or over rice or veggies for dinner.

Recipe makes approximately 72 small (1 tablespoon) meatballs or 36 medium (2 tablespoon) meatballs.

  2. It looks so yummy thats why i'm planning to try this one day

  3. gonna try this tommorrow.looks great tasting

  4. Can't wait to try this. . . . .so simple. My family likes a little heat, so I'd probably add a little cayenne pepper (easy fix). Thanks for posting.

  5. Made these and they are AMAZING!!

  6. I made this for dinner. Very nice.

  7. This is very good, I see the original recipe from the company didn't include the grd. pork but I think by adding that to your recipe it made it much better.

    I made these and also added pineapple chunks to the dish for added flavor. Very good.

  8. Do you think using ground turkey and ground pork would be O.K.?
