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.
(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!
