Honey Garlic Meatballs and Spaetzle

Honey Garlic Meatballs and Spaetzle


1-1.5 pounds of ground beef
handful of bread crumbs
1 egg
2-3 cloves garlic
1 tsp cayenne
1/4 chopped onion
ground pepper
1 red, orange, and green bell peppers

store bought honey garlic sauce
soy sauce


1. In a large bowl, put your ground beef in and mix it up and break it up with a fork. Crack one egg into it, as well as sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Add 1 tsp of cayenne pepper, but you could omit it if you don't like heat. Also, dice up a little bit of onion and put it into the ground beef. Crush 2-3 garlic cloves and also put them into the bowl. Mix it around. Sprinkle in some bread crumbs. Just enough so that it isn't completely wet. It will just make it easier to form them into balls.

2. After you are done mixing, form the mixture into balls. About the size of a golf ball. Put the meatballs on a baking tray. You could fry the meatballs in a pan. But I've found doing them in an oven on a baking tray is much easier. As it doesn't require any flipping around and they cook more evenly. Put the tray in an oven at 400 degrees for maybe 20 minutes. You'll know they are done when the fat has oozed out and is surrounding the balls at the bottom of the tray.

3. Cut up some colourful bell peppers. Whatever colours you can find. And toss them in a frying pan to cooking them through. Once cooked, put in your meatballs which you have taken off your tray. Stir in some store bought garlic sauce, or diana sauce. OR make your own sauce in a small pot with honey, soy sauce, and some crushed garlic.

4. Serve on top of spaetzle, or rice.
