I absolutely loved this combination of meats. It came out just great. The meatballs were delicious and the sauce just took them a notch higher. Do give them a go, I’m pretty sure they’ll be a hit in your kitchen! We’ll get straight into it.

BTW…. I took the shots of the finished meatballs myself this time as hubby (who usually takes all images here) was extremely busy! Not bad right 😀

  8. When garlic and ginger are aromatic, pour the honey and soy mixture into saucepan. Bring to the boil. Add sugar and still. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and simmer for 3-5 min, stirring occasionally.
  9. Pour some of this sauce over the meatballs. Mix until meatballs are well coated with the sauce. Save the remaining sauce to use as a condiment, basting sauce or marinade  even for another recipe. Enjoy!
