Julbi is a Punjab native who enjoys nothing better than making something special from a bunch of ingredients for her husband and daughter. This is what she loves to do and no one can deny the fact how much a Punjabi loves food. And we can see that in Julbi’s enthusiasm for food.

Meatballs are something that no one can deny. Ground meat rolled into small balls along with other seasonings are a treat to have. And the recipe that I am going to share with all of you today is Teriyaki Meatballs.

Teriyaki Meatballs were first made in Japan and the word teriyaki if broken down gives two Japanese words- teri, which means a shine given by the sugar content in tare and yaki, which means grilling. These meatballs are a very great combination of ground pork and beef pork. So if you are craving for Japanese cuisine, you must surely try this recipe.

Teriyaki Meatballs can be made in 3 steps: first make the teriyaki sauce by mixing cornstarch and water brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger and honey in a bowl. Then prepare the meat balls by combining ground pork, ground beef, egg yolks, panko, garlic, green onions, soy sauce, ginger and white pepper and roll them into meatballs. Bake them and serve with teriyaki sauce.

This is the best teriyaki combination that you’ll ever eat. I personally love this dish so much that I make it at home atleast twice a month. But to make these teriyaki meatballs special, make sure to read the detailed steps below. Without those instructions, you won’t be able to get the delicious taste that I am talking about.
