  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs we prefer Panko
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt you can use fresh garlic as well
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth I prefer beef flavor in this recipe
  • 1/3-1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 TBSP Hoisin sauce
  • 1 TBSP Soy Sauce
  • 1 TBSP Sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 TBSP cornstarch mixed with water, if needed


  • 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.
