Teriyaki Meatballs

Yum! If you like meatballs, and you like teriyaki sauce, definitely try these. I got this recipe from My Kitchen Cafe. I changed up how I cooked the meatballs, and I think they turned out great. Enjoy!
Teriyaki Meatballs
adapted from My Kitchen Cafe

2 pounds ground meat (I used ground turkey.)
2 eggs
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons milk

1/2 cup soy sauce
1 3/4 cups water
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water

For the meatballs, in a large bowl, combine all the meatball ingredients except for the ground meat and mix well. Add the ground meat and mix until combined. Form ground beef mixture into 1 to 1 1/2-inch meatballs. It will make about 16-20 meatballs. Place in a greased casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, turning once to prevent burning.

While the meatballs are baking, in a medium bowl mix the soy sauce, 1 3/4 cups water, ginger, garlic powder, brown sugar, and honey together. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch into the 1/2 cup cold water. Heat the sauce in a sauce pan until just simmering and add the cornstarch/water mixture. Simmer the meatballs and sauce over medium heat, maintaining a constant simmer but not cooking at too high of a boil, until the sauce is thick and smooth (if the sauce becomes overly thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time to thin), about 10-15 minutes.

After meatballs are cooked, pour sauce over the meatballs. Stir meatballs so that all are coated in teriyaki sauce. Place back in the oven for 10 minutes.

Serve over rice or couscous.
