I’ve been getting a consistent order of ground beef and steaks from Walden Local Meat and I have been seeking ideas for things to keep dinners interesting.

I was perusing Tik Tok and saw a recipe for teriyaki meatballs. Of course I didn’t think to save it and if you know anything about #FYP you’ll know it’s hard to find something you scroll past and then the page refreshes.

So I decided to wing it.

1 lb ground beef
1Tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
3 scallions (chopped) (reserve some greens for garnish)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp Sriracha (optional)
1 egg
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

For the glaze: store bought or homemade teriyaki marinade ( i used store bought)

Combine ingredients (except marinade) and form 1 to 2 inch meat balls (about the size of a golf ball). Place in air fryer that has been prepped with non stick spray. Brush meatballs with teriyaki marinade or glaze. Air fry at 400 degrees for 15 mins.
Toss meatballs in teriyaki marinade and scallions. Serve over white rice.

Nice change of pace.

Would def make again. Will try with pork.
