Although I had to triple the recipe but only had 1/2 cup hoisin sauce (added 1 cup homemade teriyaki sauce), the flavor of the hoisin sauce came through. I only had large frozen meatballs but they worked well for an entree. Glazed well, leftovers more sticky and spicy.

Very fast and easy! I expected it to have a bit of a kick but this was not the case. I think a bit more Sriracha sauce should improve the flavor for us. Thanks for posting.

Really tasty! I loved the speed this could be assembled, not to mention family loved it. I doubled the sauce and used a 20oz pkg of meatballs.

Loved this. I did make my own meatballs but I used this sauce exactly and cooked as directed. Will make again!

These were great! They were very easy to make for a weeknight meal. I used a bit more Sriracha sauce and they had a bit more heat at the end. I also doubled the recipe. I did not use the sesame seed or onion....didn't need it. My 14 year old loves Quinoa and I served hers over that. The rest of us had them over rice. Awesome, will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing!

So easy to make after a long day - came together quickly and everyone loved it. I doubled the recipe, and there's barely enough leftover for one - family is already fighting over it! We'll see who wins. Thank you for this great recipe! Will definitely make again.

Excellent--both in taste and in ease and time spent to make. My husband really enjoyed it. I garnished it only with the green onion, didn't do the toasted sesame seed garnish. I served it over white rice. I will definitely be making this again and will share with both my daughters who are time-strapped at dinner time!

We enjoyed this recipe, but unlike brown19fan, I decreased the sugar. Since hosin sauce's first ingredient is sugar, I omitted the brown sugar. I used turkey meatballs and also used fresh ginger and garlic. The meatballs still glazed well. Since we had just eaten rice with several previous meals, I used Chinese noodles. The scallions and sesame seeds were very tasty garnishes. I also stir-fried some cabbage to go with the meal. I would definitely make these again.

These meatballs were great but my husband thought they would be better on a Hogue roll. Loved it!

Four thumbs up! Next time I will make sure to buy 1/2-ounce meatballs. I will also use less Sriracha and a bit more sugar.
