Chinese Meatball Sliders Recipe

Chinese Meatball Sliders
The NFL playoffs and the Superbowl are approaching fast and that means it is time for more slider recipes. These Chinese meatball sliders make a perfect recipe for any game day party. I saw this recipe in the Food Network Magazine and wanted to give it a try. The meatballs use classic Asian ingredients such as hoisin sauce, ginger, and green onions and are baked in the oven. After the meatballs are finished baking, they are brushed with a hoisin sauce and rice vinegar glaze. The ground pork really helps to add flavor to these meatballs. I like to use dinner rolls for the buns and some mayonnaise and romaine lettuce are added to these sliders for even more great flavor.

Chinese Meatball Sliders

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 12 ounces ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled ginger
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 12 slider buns
  • mayonnaise
  • shredded romaine lettuce

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce with 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar. Set aside.
  2. In a large combine ground pork, panko, ginger, 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce,  ½ teaspoon of salt, and a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Roll the mixture into 12 (1/2 inch) meatballs. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Place into the oven and bake, turning once, until browned and fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees F.), about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove from the oven and brush each meatball with the hoisin sauce/vinegar mixture.
  3. Spread some mayonnaise on the bottom half of each slider bun, add some shredded lettuce on top of the mayonnaise and add a meatball on top of the lettuce.
