Asian Style Meatball Stir Fry

Okay so bear with me. I know it sounds weird, strange and utterly odd. But this is really good.


rice, cooked
teriaki sauce
meatballs, frozen pre-made
bag of frozen asian vegetables

Here's how to put it together. Take the meatballs and toss them in a pan on medium heat. When they are about 2/3 cooked through, toss in the bag of frozen veggies. Cover with a lid for a few minutes to allow the veggies to thaw and give off some of its juices. Just when things are looking like they are hot and there is a bit of water on the bottom of the pan from the veggies, add about 1/2 cup of teriaki sauce and stir so that the meatballs and the veggies are covered. If the sauce looks too juicy then allow to reduce a few minutes before serving. You want some sauce for the rice. Then put a scoop of cooked rice on the plate and then scoop the meatballs and veggies on top and serve. Now, how easy is that.

My kids love meatballs and we have them quite often as they are quick and easy to make when they come frozen from the store. This recipe surprised even my pickiest of eaters. For some of the kids I didn't put the meatballs and veggies on the rice because they don't like their food to mingle with each other. They loved the sweet teriaki sauce on the meatballs!!
