Grilled Korean Meatballs

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

This week for Sunday Supper the TasteMakers have put together a fabulous collection of almost 50 meatball recipes of all types and cuisines. For this event I was excited to be able to recreate a recipe for you that I first published online over ten years ago. At the time, gochujang was not available to me. But times change and now you can get that almost anywhere including Walmart. So the recipe itself has evolved slightly with a few changes including just cooking on a mesh grill grate rather than threading the meatballs onto wooden skewers.

But overall the end result is the same. You can serve these meatballs with various sorts of dipping sauces such as seasoned gochujang (ssamjang), sweet and sour or other dipping sauces. In this instance I did a quick drizzle with sriracha and was fine with that. Other times I might use other things.

These are quite easy to make, and if you’d like to jazz them up for entertaining you can serve them in small lettuce cups or on sword toothpicks, perhaps with a bit of something else such as pineapple chunks or bits of kimchi.

    Lovely Korean twist on your grilled meatballs, Sue. I saw a meatball grill pan just the other day at our Ace Hardware and I thought, what would I make with that? Now I know!
