How To Make Mongolian BBQ Meatballs Recipe

Tender beef meatballs coated in a sweet and savory Mongolian BBQ sauce.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Sesame seeds and additional green onions for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, green onions, egg, garlic powder, ginger powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.

  3. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch meatballs and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake the meatballs for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.

  5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

  6. In a separate small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water. Slowly stir the cornstarch mixture into the saucepan and continue to stir until the sauce thickens, about 3-5 minutes.

  7. Once the meatballs are cooked, remove them from the oven and carefully toss them in the Mongolian BBQ sauce until they are fully coated.

  8. Serve the meatballs hot, garnished with sesame seeds and additional green onions if desired.
