      We loved these meatballs. I added the garlic chile paste to the meatball mixture instead of the glaze. I baked them in a 350 degree oven. Tossed them with some Thai Sweet Chile Sauce, and nuked them for a couple minutes. Everyone loved them. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Really outstanding meatballs! I translated the recipe into Australian and used a bit over 300gm lean beef and I'm guessing that broiling means grilling! All ingredients are always in the pantry so this was a very easy recipe. I used 1/2 tsp siraccha sauce rather than chillies and the heat was perfect. Served with coconut rice, fantastic meal - thanks for posting!
