Super Bowl Grub 2: Spicy Meatballs

When my friend Jenny saw my previous post: Crispy Chicken Bites with Wasabi Mayo, she immediately called me to ask for more Asian inspired appetizers to serve this Sunday.   She asked me to make another "simple yet creative" plate to wow her friends.  Her call prompted me to post a sequel (lol!)  so here's my Super Bowl Grub 2: Spicy Meatball.

Guided by Jenny's special request, I wanted to make it as simple as possible.  So if you don't have the luxury of time to make those meatballs, a bag of meatballs from your favorite grocery store should do the work for you.  All you need now is to prepare the sauce or the glaze and you are ready to enjoy the game with your friends.

Spicy Meatballs
(As I've mentioned, you could use ready made meatballs but in case you love to prepare everything from scracth, get the recipe from my previous post ).

So now that you have the meatballs all you need to do is to make the sauce.  so we need:
3 tbsp ketchup
1 1/2 tbsp siracha (you could adjust this amount accdg to your "hot" preference)
1tsp pepper flakes
3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp pepper flakes

Saute garlic and onions in a pan.  Add the ketchup, siracha, oyster suace.  Let it simmer.  Add brown sugar and pepper flakes.  Allow a few more minutes to simmer.  Add the cooked meatballs and let it simmer until sauce is thick and sticky.

Arrange the meatballs on a platter and garnish with onion leeks on a toothpick.

I hope Jenny wins big with this plate  and the crispy chicken bites when she makes them for her friends on Game Day...  Go Jenny!


  1. I love meatball appetizers. They're small and have no calories.

  2. Malou-these yummy meatballs look so attractive, and fancy! Siracha is my choice of the best hot sauce, but oh, so hot, hot. Gotta use it sparingly.
    Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe:DDD

  3. This will be a big hit Malou! I can't eat food that's too spicy, but my husband loves it, and so as most of my friends. I like the idea of "worst scenario" (buying meatballs) too, because we never know when we have to prepare some quick snack. You did a wonderful job making these meatballs so attractive!

  4. Oh these are SO cute. I love the handles. Nobody will leave toothpicks lying around everywhere which is what happens to me all the time. In the flower pots, on the deck railing...

  5. Meatballs are so easy to feed a crowd! Love this recipe =)

  6. Well done! These are fantastic Asian inspired superbowl grub :) I wish the party I'm going to would have some of these...

  7. Pretty! I love the use of the green onions instead of toothpicks.

  8. These are perfect little appetizers, and I am sure my guys will love
    them :) And love the presentation, hugs

  9. thanks Claudia. I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

    Elisabeth: yep you gotta use it sparingly or else... hahah you know what happens next.

    Thanks Nami, yep i do have a bag of meatballs in my freezer every now and then. It comes in handy all the time.

    Maureen: I know what you mean trust me, i found toothpick in the pool too.. not good.

  10. Thanks Peggy!

    Parsley Sage: I hope so too. But nonetheless, enjoy the game!

    Food Jaunts: Thank you. It's still has toothpick though.only hidden hehe.
