Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef

1/2 cup cilantro (chopped)

1 teaspoon fresh garlic (minced)

1 teaspoon fresh ginger root (minced)

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon light soy sauce (or a gluten-free alternative)

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/4 cup light soy sauce (or a gluten-free alternative)

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon hot sauce (such as sriracha)

1 teaspoon fresh garlic (minced)

1 teaspoon fresh ginger root (minced)

1 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with high-heat-resistant parchment paper.

Place the meatball ingredients in a medium bowl and use your hands to combine them. Shape into 24 meatballs, each weighing about 20 grams.

Arrange the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake them until they are cooked through, for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the soy sauce and cornstarch. Gradually whisk in the remaining ingredients, except for the sesame oil, until well-combined.

Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly until the sauce thickens into a rich glaze. This should take 3-5 minutes. Turn the heat off as soon as the sauce thickens but leave it on the cooling burner. Stir in the sesame oil.

Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the baked meatballs into the saucepan. Gently turn them in the sauce until well-coated. Serve immediately.
