Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place the dried mushrooms in a bowl. Pour 1/4 cup of warm water over the mushrooms; allow to soak until the mushrooms have rehydrated, about 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the water, and set both the mushrooms and water aside.
  3. Combine the ground pork, carrots, onion, garlic, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, the drained mushrooms, and the egg white in a large bowl; mix with hands until evenly combined. Form the mixture into 16 meatballs; arrange into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Stir the reserved water from the mushrooms, the applesauce, 1/4 cup water, maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and brown sugar together in a bowl; pour over the meatballs. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove the foil from the dish and continue baking until the meatballs are cooked through and no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes more.

This just didn't work for us. The meatballs smelled delicious while they were baking but we didn't care for the way they tasted.

These were wonderful! We didn't have mushrooms on hand, yet it was still delicious! I would totally recommend this! We served it over rice but we want to try noodles next time!

Wow! My Husband said meatball heaven. I did change a few things because he and my son do not like mushrooms. Used 1 tsp. hoisin and 1/2 tsp. fish sauce in the meatballs instead of the soy sau...

These are great. I make homemade perogi's every year for Christmas, and I used this as a filler. Sooooo delish!!!!

The blend seemed weird, but it worked. Served up with the Lo Mein Noodles with vegetables from this site and will definitely make both again.
