Excellent! I found these to be full of rich flavor and very moist & tender. The sauce is very tangy - I might cut down the amount of vinegar next time for personal preference, however it was still wonderful as is. The ginger flavor really came through nicely and blended well with the other ingredients. The meatballs were very attractive with the tiny bits of red bell pepper flecks. Very easy to prepare. Note: I did have to brown my meatballs in two batches to fit them in without crowding, which added some extra cooking time.I made 48 small meatballs.

My intention was to serve this over noodles - but these little things turned out so delicous, we just ate them with toothpicks! The sauce is sweet but also tangy. These are great!

Good recipe. I think it would make a great appetizer, serve with toothpicks. I personally ate it over rice per the suggestion and it was good too. Easy to make, although finding plum preserves in my local stores was a little tough, but thats not the recipe's fault! I would make it again, and if I tried it over rice again I think I would add some asian veggies, such as water chestnuts, snow peas, etc. Good stuff.

The flavor of both the meatballs themselves and the sauce is amazing! We just had this for dinner over steamed rice, and both my picky husband and I loved it!

I made this for my family last night for dinner. We all loved it. I used ground turkey breast and turkey sausage and it was excellent. The only drawback, was that it took longer to prepare than the 40 mins. suggested. Our dinner was later than expected, but still GREAT! Thanks!

This a perfect recipe for a party. You won't have to feel guilty about serving something you bought in the frozen food section, but you also won't be slaving in the kitchen all day trying to prepare something tasty. The flavor of the sauce is bold but not so intense that picky eaters will turn their noses up. If you want a time saving, guest friendly recipe for your next event, this is the one!
