My husband and son loved these meatballs. When making the meatbals I used dry sherry in place of the sake. When I made the sauce I used sherry in place of the mirin and found that I needed to add about 1/4 cup of water so the sauce was not too thick. I made these in the food processor and baked them in the oven for about 45 minutes at 350. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for the recipe.
I think that this is a wonderful idea! I needed an extra side dish quickly, so I used store bought meatballs and the same sauce ingredients, with honey, orange juice, and honey barbecue sauce added- I did use a lot more water as I wanted a thinner sauce. They turned out awesome- I received several compliments on them!
great treat or meal, but it came out dry.thought that might be my fault.lol
Im sorry for the bad rating....but the sauce became a ball of dough and I had to throw it out.......Also, the meatballs were a bit tasteless and dry....So sorry :(
