With everything that is going on in the world, I did a poll on my Instagram about what types of recipes you want to see, and the surprising response was making take-out dishes at home.
I loved the idea of using the new calorie-free @Truvia Sweet Complete™ to make a sweet and savory dish, so I made Asian sweet and spicy meatballs with white rice and sugar snap peas.
It is quick, delicious, and the meatballs can be made ahead of time as well as the rice, so the actual cooking time would be less than 15 minutes from beginning to end with a bit of planning. And, because Sweet Complete™ bakes and browns in recipes and sweetens and measures like sugar, I didn’t need to think twice about changing up the recipe. Makes 4 servings.
These sweet and spicy Asian meatballs will be a hit with your whole family!
- Prep Time: 5
- Cook Time: 10
- Total Time: 15
- Cuisine: Asian
For the meatballs:
- 1 pound ground sirloin
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Truvia® Sweet Complete™
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Shape the meatballs in as big a shape as you like – I prefer small meatballs, so mine were about the size of a marble. Heat skillet over medium heat, and cook the meatballs until they are about 80% cooked – about 4-5 minutes.
For the glaze:
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons Truvia® Sweet Complete™
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1 tablespoon sugar free orange marmalade
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
- 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
While the meatballs cook, place the glaze ingredients in a sauce pan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 4 minutes or until thickened. Toss in the meatballs and cook for 1 more minute. Serve over rice garnish with what you have on hand – I used sliced sugar snap peas.
This is an easy recipe – pinky swear! This recipe is also done before you would even have the chance to call in a take-out order.
This recipe is 8 WW points, no matter which plan you are on – that is just for the beef. Completely worth it!!
