72 meatballs



  • cooking spray

  • 2 pounds extra-lean ground beef

  • 1 cup plain dry bread crumbs

  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • ¼ cup dehydrated onion flakes

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth

  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Mix ground beef, bread crumbs, bell pepper, onion flakes, eggs, garlic, soy sauce, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until well combined. Shape mixture into 1-inch meatballs; you should have approximately 72.

  3. Bake meatballs in the preheated oven until no longer pink inside, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). Remove from the oven and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil. Place in a large bowl or casserole dish.

  4. Combine broth, teriyaki sauce, and vinegar in a saucepan over medium heat; mix until boiling. Stir water and cornstarch together in a small bowl and stir into the saucepan; cook until thick, 1 to 2 minutes.

  5. Pour sauce over meatballs and gently toss until coated. Serve immediately or keep warm in a slow cooker or in a 275 degrees oven (135 degrees C) covered with foil.
