Recipe by: Frankie


8 ounces ground beef
8 ounces ground pork
1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 large egg
1 tsp fresh orange zest
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 2 pounds of oranges)
1/4 cup honey
2 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP rice vinegar
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 TBSP cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water



1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

2. Mix all the MEATBALLS ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Then use your hands to form small balls about 1-inch in diameter. Place the balls on a large rimmed baking sheet.

3. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 15 minutes.


1. Add the orange zest, orange juice, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, and crushed red pepper to a saucepan. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

2. Reduce the heat to medium. In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of cold water.

3. Slowly stir the cornstarch mixture into the pan with the sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until sauce is thickened, about 8 minutes.

4. Add the cooked meatballs to the sauce and stir until all the meatballs are well coated in the sauce.
