This is a great way to take a classic meatball and make it a little modern with an Asian sauce instead.....trust me......everyone will love them! I made yet, another batch of my quick and delicious Nana's Meatballs. I love making a recipe that I can use in different ways. I used half of the meatballs to have with a traditional red sauce over pasta and the other half with the Asian Sauce. I had two totally different dishes. I like serving the Spicy Asian Meatballs as an appetizer on top of a bed of this delicious Warm Asian Slaw. The next time you want to make meatballs, surprise your family and friends with a little something different. Enjoy!

Great appetizer. I could have it as a main course. Loved the sauce, it just made the dish. I did use chicken meatballs that I had leftover but made the same way. I served with tilapia and Asian noodles.
