Tennessee "Oriental" Meatballs

  • 2 pounds ground beef, 80/20 ratio (we use Gourmet Pasture Beef)
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1t ground ginger
  • 2T chopped garlic
  • 1/4t crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 T Dijon mustard
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup whole oats (we use Tennessee Oats)
  • Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl, using hands with gloves is the easiest way.
  • Chill for one hour as they are easier to shape when they are cold.
  • Shape into meatballs with hands or ice cream scoop to desired size.
  • Place on baking pan with sides to catch excess grease.
  • Bake in 400F oven for 15-20 minutes or until firm.
  • Number of meatballs will depend on size, but for 1 ounce meatballs, you will get 30-40.
  • Meatballs maybe frozen prior to cooking for latter use.
  • Serve with any sauce you desire, stir fried vegetables or roasted winter squash.
  • Enjoy!
