Teriyaki Meatballs Recipe

With the party season just around the corner, there’s no better time to whip up a batch of these delicious beef teriyaki meatballs. Meatballs make the perfect party snack, but are just as good served with rice and vegetables for an easy weeknight dinner. Oh and because they’re made with beef mince, this is a great meal for when you’re sticking to a budget (and aren’t we all!).

One of the best things about meatballs is that they’re super kid-friendly. Yep, these bite-sized morsels are guaranteed to be gobbled up in a flash!

If you’re making these beef teriyaki meatballs for a party, simply serve on a large platter with toothpicks and extra teriyaki dipping sauce on the side. What a perfect idea for a Christmas function!

The homemade teriyaki sauce is so delicious, but if you’re pushed for time then simply use a store-bought teriyaki sauce (I promise no-one will know the difference!). Gotta love a few little sneaky timesavers, right!

So let’s get into the recipe and learn how to make these yummy little meatballs…
