Asian Meatballs are a fun switch up from a classic meatball with loads of flavor from ginger, herbs and sweet chili sauce. Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds for a delicious dinner the whole family is going to enjoy.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces sweet chili sauce, divided (I like to Mae Ploy brand)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sesame seeds


  1. Let the ground beef sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes before making meatballs.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add the ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, chopped parsley, chopped green onion, minced ginger, salt and 1/4 cup of the sweet chili sauce. Put gloves on and mix the ingredients together well.
  3. Form the meatballs. I recommend a meatball press/baller to get them equally formed.
  4. Heat up a pan on a medium-high heat on stove top and preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  5. Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil to the pan, followed by the meatballs.
  6. Let all 4 sides of the meatball brown and then place into a foil covered baking sheet or casserole dish.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  8. Flip meatballs and pour the remainder of sweet chili sauce on top. Bake another 10 minutes.
  9. Serve over rice and garnish with sesame seeds.
