Maple Garlic Meatballs
GYR Burger Mix
⅓ cup oil
¼ cup natural peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter)
1 ¼ cups boiling water
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup soy sauce
4 tsp minced fresh garlic
4 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 ½ cups water
¼ cup cornstarch
For the V-balls
For the Sauce
Preheat oven to 325 convection and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the GYR Burger mix to a medium size bowl, set aside.
In a small bowl, combine ⅓ cup oil with ¼ cup peanut butter, then add 1 ¼ cups of boiling water. Stir to combine and immediately add to the GYR burger mix.
Stir all ingredients to combine well, then cover the bowl with a tight fitting lid, plate, or saran wrap. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Form into 16-18 meatballs that are roughly 1” in diameter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes.
While v-balls are in the oven, prepare the sauce!
Add all of the sauce ingredients into a medium pot and whisk well to combine, making sure there aren’t any lumps of cornstarch.
Bring the mixture to a medium boil and whisk until thickened.
Turn off the heat and remove from the stove.
Transfer the baked meatballs into a serving dish and coat with your maple garlic sauce.
