  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Brown meatballs in batches, adding additional oil as needed. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
  3. Add sauce ingredients to skillet; cook and stir over medium heat until blended. Return meatballs to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5-8 minutes or until meatballs are glazed and cooked through, stirring occasionally. Serve meatballs in lettuce leaves; sprinkle with cilantro. Yield: 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: Look for mirin in the Asian condiments section.
