These sweet and sour meatballs came directly from Japanese cuisine making my cooking richer with a great combination of flavors.
I’ve visited a Japanese restaurant on the business trip, recently. All those meals listed on the menu made me a little confused but yet interested in trying out something new. Fish was the main ingredient in almost every meal. I wasn’t in a mood to eat fish so I have chosen these meatballs not knowingly that the sauce is sweet. The first bite was a surprise for me and my tender taste buds. The next one was the tastiest one on the earth. That was the love on the second bite. I’m very happy that Japanese cuisine came into my life.

Put the prepared meat and all the other ingredients into the bowl and mix it with your hands. Form the meatballs in 1 inch shaped balls. Place the meatballs on the pan covered with baking paper and bake them in the oven at 400 F degrees for 20 minutes. In the meanwhile prepare the Teriyaki sauce.

Put some oil on your hands before shaping the meatballs to reduce sticking the meat to hands.
