Growing up with my mom’s family being from Hawaii, we ate a fair amount of teriyaki chicken and steak. Lots of teriyaki and lots of rice, usually with some salad. That was dinner a lot of nights. While it was tasty, you have to admit that store bought teriyaki sauce and even my mom’s homemade version pack quite a bit of sugar. Luckily, Justin is a wizard when it comes to sauces, dressings and marinades! He concocted this flavorful teriyaki sauce without the refined sugar, and it is so so tasty!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit and line a large baking pan with parchment paper or foil.
  • Place ground turkey and green onions in a large bowl.
  • In a separate small bowl, make teriyaki sauce by combining coconut aminos, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, garlic, ginger and hot sauce in a small bowl. Stir with a whisk until everything is evenly blended.
  • Pour half of the teriyaki sauce into the bowl with the turkey and onions. Mix everything together well with your hands until the sauce and onions are mixed evenly in the turkey.
  • Now, form the turkey into small balls about the size of a heaping tablespoon. You can use a small ice cream scoop if you have one, it makes it easy to form the turkey into balls without everything sticking to your hands. This should yield about 25 of meatballs.
  • Place in the oven to cook for 20 minutes.
  • When the meatballs have about 7 minutes left, pour the remaining teriyaki sauce in a small sauce pan and add in 1/2 tsp of cassava or arrowroot flour. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until the sauce is slightly thickened.
  • Remove meatballs from the oven and transfer to a mixing bowl. Drizzle with warm sauce and toss to combine.Top with sesame seeds and green onion if desired and serve.

  • So good and family approved. My 3 year old loved them! My meatball mix was a little liquidy so I added an egg. Not sure if that did anything. also added fish sauce to the sauce for a little umami. didn’t have ginger so I used a little cinnamon. I used an ice cream scoop to scoop out the mix but didn’t roll into balls (which was actually easier) they looked more like little flat sausages but they still turned out so good!
