Asian Turkey Meatballs with Gochujang Glaze


These turkey meatballs are seasoned with ginger and spices and finished with a sweet and spicy, gochujang glaze. These are great as an appetizer or serve them with brown rice to make them a meal.

I’m obsessed with gochujang, a thick, spicy red chili paste and one of the backbone ingredients of Korean cooking. I love the kick and depth of flavor that it adds to everything you stir it into — a little goes a long way.
