These meatballs are air fried and simmered in a sticky, salty, sweet spicy sauce. You can either deep fry this or bake it in the oven as well.


Ground beef 500 Gram
Salt To Taste
Ground white pepper 1 Tablespoon
Minced garlic 1 Tablespoon
Minced ginger 1 Tablespoon
Minced spring onions 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Whole egg 1
Panko breadcrumbs 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
For sauce:
Ketchup 3 Tablespoon
Gochujang chili paste 2 Tablespoon (Chilli Pepper paste)
Minced garlic 2 Tablespoon
Honey 1/4 Tablespoon
Sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Light soy sauce 2 Tablespoon
Sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
Salt To Taste
Pepper To Taste
Orange juice 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
For garnish:
Finely chopped ginger 1/2 Tablespoon
Spring onion leaves 2 Tablespoon
Sesame seeds 1 Teaspoon
Coriander leaves 2 Tablespoon



1. Prepare the sauce by heating all the ingredients except the orange juice, that will just be used in the end to thin the sauce and loosen it up.

2. Add the salt, pepper, ginger, garlic, spring onions, egg and breadcrumbs to the ground meat and mix well to incorporate.

3. Use an ice cream scoop to divide the meatballs and oiled hands to shape them.

4. You can either deep fry or oven bake these meatballs but I am using my air fryer to get fried results without using any oil.

5. Once the meatballs are ready, heat up the sauce and add the orange juice.

6. Toss in the meatballs and garnish with finely chopped ginger, spring onion leaves, sesame seeds and coriander leaves.


7. Serve and enjoy!
