Ingredients

For the meatballs:

  • 1/2 lb (450g) lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb (450g) lean ground pork
  • 1 scallion , plus a bit more for garnish, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 ripe avocado , peeled and cut into 14 pieces

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup (60ml) low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix all the meatball ingredients (except the avocado) together in a large bowl. Divide meat mixture into 14 portions and cut avocado into 14 pieces. Place 1 piece avocado in center of each meat portion and gently shape into ball. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until browned and no longer pink inside.
  • Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for the sauce in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
  • Add meatballs to the sauce and gently stir to evenly coat. Cook for 1-2 min, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Serve over spaghetti, rice, or mashed potatoes. Garnish with additional chopped scallion, if desired. Enjoy!
