Teriyaki Meatballs

Updated: Mar 28, 2021

SO delicious and packed with protein! Homemade teriyaki sauce cannot be beat!

Seriously the BEST homemade sauce and moist delicious meatballs!

Full recipe in video below!


  • 1 pound 96% ground beef

  • 1 pound 99% ground turkey

  • 1 large egg well beaten

  • 4 green onions thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced

  • 2 tsp ginger minced

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 2/3 cup soy sauce reduced-sodium

  • 1 1/4 cups water

  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger

  • 1 clove garlic minced

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar alternative

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 1/4 cup water cold

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (garnish)

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees then coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, gently mix ground beef & turkey until well combined. In a separate small bowl, mix beaten egg, green onion, garlic, ginger & soy sauce until well combined.

  • Add egg mixture and panko breadcrumbs to the meat and mix as gently and as little as possible to bring everything into a homogenous mixture. Form golf ball-sized meatballs using a cookie scoop then place on prepared baking sheet. Bake 15–18 minutes just until meatballs are barely cooked through.

  • Meanwhile, place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add soy sauce, water, ginger, garlic, brown sugar and honey then whisk until completely combined. In a separate small bowl or cup, stir together the cornstarch and ¼ cup of cold water.

  • Bring liquid to a boil then remove from heat. Whisk cornstarch mixture into sauce then return to heat. Return liquid to a boil, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Once liquid reaches a boil and has thickened nicely, reduce heat to low and let sauce simmer.

  • Transfer meatballs from baking sheet into sauce, turning or stirring to coat in sauce. Allow meatballs to simmer in the sauce until they are heated through then garnish with sliced green onions or sesame seeds.

Made these last night and OH MY GOODNESS they were delicious! I made the teriyaki sauce the day before so it all came together really quickly. We all loved them! Had never made homemade teriyaki before... huge difference! Definitely a new recipe in the rotation!

Is there a way to save your recipes to my WW Pinterest board? I can't figure out a way to save the ones I'd like to make first!

Thank you!

I’m not that familiar with Pinterest. So I’m not sure how you would save them to your board.
