How to Make Hawaiian Meatballs
These delicious teriyaki meatballs can be made with any type of meat but I typically use ground pork or 85% lean beef. Ground turkey will also work well for this recipe. The extra fat from the beef or pork just makes these meatballs more flavorful and moist. The meat mixture is seasoned with loads of garlic and ginger, so you’ll have a good kick of flavor with every bite. Each meatball is first fried, then coated in a homemade sauce.
Hawaiian Teriyaki Sauce
The homemade, Hawaiian teriyaki sauce is made with pineapple, soy, garlic and ginger. This sauce is simply amazing and it’s so easy to make! I wish I could bottle it up and eat it with everything! Once the meatballs are fried, coat them in this sauce and cook for another minute until the meatballs are well coated. And the best part about this recipe, is that you can make it all in one pan! Serve the meatballs with steam white or brown rice, or your favorite noodles. These will also work well with fried rice!
