A delicious recipe for Teriyaki meatballs. Meatballs with a Japanese touch, simmered in a sauce with soy and saké. A snack which is a winner at any party.
Every month there is a food blog swap and after skipping it for a few months, I’m participating again. Just because I love to challenge yourself to make a recipe from another blogger. And it’s great to snoop around on their blog. And always I find great recipes I always loved to try out. Like this time when I was cooking from the Dutch blog Foodfoozle. A blog where Maaike shares her recipes, which you can compare a little with the recipes you encounter here. Sometimes longer, sometimes shorter, harder and somewhat simpler recipes. In short, there are enough recipes for everyone. I came across the Teriyaki meatballs which seemed very nice to me. And because we love to eat small appetizers on a lazy Sunday, it wasn’t so difficult to prepare it sometime. But posting it was a bit harder
For it was Carnival at the end of this month (and no, that’s not every year in the same week because it shifts every year). And in all the activities I hadn’t come to write this post. So that’s why on 1 March, the month when spring officially begins this delicious recipe is shared.
Teriyaki is originally a Japanese recipe where you mix soy sauce with sugar, mirin (or sake). That sauce is simmered for a while, so it becomes thicker and while the meat grills or bakes, you brush it a few times with the marinade. And when you are very punctual, this recipe also not a real Teriyaki, but a delicious variation on it.
Maaike used in the teriyaki sauce a ready made mix sauce and that’s something I don’t use here. So I made my own sauce because it’s actually quite simple and much tastier. Try it out yourself, you will love it!
