Very good! I had some homemade mini meatballs in the freezer, so I just used those and cut the recipe down accordingly. I did only use 1/2 of the Chinese Five Spice, b/c I know it can be strong,...

We are making this regularly. We also like the sauce prepared simmered on the stovetop until the sugar is dissolved, then poured over oven baked popcorn chicken. Very good!

Did it as written with home made meatballs over rice then pasta. Good flavor, but the 5 spice goes a loooong way. Will cut it in half next time. Thanks for sharing!!!

I am glad I found this recipe. It is so different than other meatball flavors. The entire family enjoyed this wonderful flavor!

I made this for my New Years Eve party... it was a total hit (the only problem is I didn't make enough!! I will make 2 batches next time.

A little to sweet for me. I will make it again with less honey and more ginger

These were easy, and fabulous!!
