Add all meatball ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon to mix until combined. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon roll into equal size meatballs. I used a 1-inch cookie scoop and then rolled them in my hands to be sure my meatballs were the same size.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
Add the sauce ingredients to a large skillet on medium-high heat. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes or until it starts to thicken.
Add meatballs to sauce and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Add small amounts of your cornstarch mixture until you reach your desired sauce consistency. We like ours thickened but still able to drizzle over rice.
