Pork Teriyaki Meatballs

with Carrots and Zucchini over Rice

Do you love meatballs but aren’t sure how to take them beyond the usual? Say hello to bulgogi, a Korean-style sauce that knows what’s up. Based around soy sauce, it has savory complexity for sophisticated palates, plus just enough sweetness to round things out. In this recipe, it’s used to glaze pork meatballs, giving them an outer layer of extra flavor that pairs perfectly with the sesame-accented rice, carrots, and zucchini.

Family Friendly

Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Medium Bowl
Small pot
Large Pan



Wash and dry all produce. Trim and halve zucchini lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Peel and mince ginger until you have 1 TBSP. Quarter lime. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.

Form Meatballs and Cook Rice

In a medium bowl, combine pork, panko, ginger, scallion whites, 1 TBSP teriyaki sauce (2 TBSP for 4), ½ tsp salt (1 tsp for 4), and pepper. Form into 1-inch balls. In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4), and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.

Cook Zucchini

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until just tender, 4-6 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a second medium bowl.

Cook Carrots and Sear Meatballs

Heat a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to bowl with zucchini; toss with half the sesame oil (save the rest for step 6). Heat a large drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook, turning, until browned all over, 4-6 minutes.

Simmer Sauce and Finish Meatballs

Add remaining teriyaki sauce to pan with meatballs. Bring to a simmer, then cover pan and reduce heat to medium low. (TIP: If your pan doesn’t have a lid, cover with aluminum foil.) Simmer until meatballs are cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Turn off heat.

Finish and Serve

Fluff rice with a fork; stir in remaining sesame oil and a squeeze of lime juice to taste. Divide between plates. Top with veggies and meatballs; drizzle with remaining sauce and sriracha to taste. Top with sesame seeds and scallion greens. Serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.
