Mass Weight Volume Number Material Notes
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon ginger, grated or minced
1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes I used gochugaru.
1 tablespoon corn starch
3 tablespoons scallions, chopped
1 pound ground meat I used chicken.
1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped finely
1 tablespoon lime juice
sesame seeds


  1. Gather all materials.
  2. Mix all materials except Hoisin sauce, cilantro, lime, and sesame seeds until roughly uniform.
  3. Form meatballs and place on baking tray.
  4. Bake at 400F until cooked through, approximately 15 minutes. Larger meatballs will take longer.
  5. Meanwhile, combine the Hoisin sauce, cilantro, and lime. We used the Hoisin cilantro sauce as a dipping sauce, but you could also go ahead and coat the meatballs with the sauce.
  6. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
