Appetizer: Sriracha Meatball Recipe

Sriracha Meatball Recipe

I find any excuse to pour sriracha in just about anything I’m making… yes, POUR! I love the taste and it goes well with just about any type of cuisine; as an ingredient or as a sauce/garnish. The spice is pretty powerful, so you can adjust for your palate, but if you haven’t tried it before, try it with this Sriracha Meatball Recipe! It’s my new go-to recipe when cooking for a crowd because the ingredients are inexpensive, easy to make and you can prepare ahead of time and simply pop in the oven to heat before serving.

  • I’m pretty sure my kids would love these! I’m going to be trying them soon!

  • This is definitely worth trying. I love Sriracha too.

  • Whats sriracha

    • Only the best hot sauce ever! Joking – it is pretty amazing though. You can pretty much but it at any large grocery retailer and in Asian grocery stores… It has an image of a rooster. The bottle is clear so you can see the bright red contents and there is a green cap.
