For the Meatballs:

  • 1 lb. ground pork, 80-90% lean
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce

For the Glaze:

  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • ½ tbsp. chili paste (Sambal Oelek), or to taste
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. water

To garnish:

  • sesame seeds
  • green onions, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Use your hands to mix together the meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Take 1½-2 tablespoons of the meat mixture and roll into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the mixture and arrange on the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping once halfway through. While the meatballs bake, start making the glaze.
  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the minced garlic and saute for 1 minute until fragrant. Stir in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, and chili paste.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch. Add to the pot and cook and stir until the sauce is thick. Remove from heat.
  • Once the meatballs are finished baking, add them to the pot with the glaze and toss to evenly coat.
  • Serve topped with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
