    Loved this - I used low sodium teriyaki sauced and used 1 tbsp of garlic powder and 1 tbsp minced onions. Will definitely make again! - 1/20/09

    My son and I liked these; my husband and daughter didn't. I thought they were good and will make them again anyway. I basted them halfway through the cooking process with additional teriyaki sauce, and placed them on a cookie cooling rack over a 9X13 pan so they weren't swimming in the fat. - 1/4/10

    Quite good! I used half the teriyaki sauce and half the garlic powder. Also I added one teaspoon of toasted sesame oil for more flavor. After baking the meatballs, I combined them with stir-fried green pepper, onion, and pineapple, and served them over cauliflower-rice. Yum! - 2/4/13

    Hubby and I tried this with brown rice. I probably should of made smaller meatballs--the flavor didn't seem to run all the way through the larger size. Definatly have to try it again. - 7/6/10

    I used turkey instead of the beef for something different and added them to stir fry teriyaki veggies to make a meal. My crew loved them. There are endless possibilities for these tasty little meatballs. - 1/8/13

    Not a single member of my 5-person family liked this. Very salty and not a fan of the teriyaki flavor. I made small meatballs. Seemed like measurements were off to me... My 7 yr old tolerated it, my 5 yr old ate it begrudgingly, and my 2 yr old didn't touch it. Hubby tossed 1/2 of his too. - 4/18/12

    I liked it. I agree that the seasonings might be too strong, as my husband and I enjoyed it but the kids thought it was too "spicy". Will adjust seasonings next time! - 9/16/09

    Good, but I only used about half of the 1/3 teriyaki sauce because it looked like A LOT as I was pouring that into the mix. It still was over-powering - very moist though. Next time I'll only use a 1/4 cup of green onions and even less teriyaki. Served with brown rice and fresh broccoli. - 9/15/12

    Prepared this recipe a few days ago. Have found the leftover meatballs keep well in the refrigerator, easily pack for lunch. I will reduce the garlic next time - personal preference. - 10/11/09

    Used 2 lbs of hamburger and minced garlic instead of powder, never have leftovers with my 3 guys in the house. Usually serve with brown rice, going to try some stir fry with red/yellow peppers, snow peas and onions... - 4/24/13

    Made this with ground turkey and we all really didn't like this recipe. I thought it just had too much of everything in it. Maybe it would have been better if we would have just stuck with ground beef! - 2/1/13

  • Super yummy. Reminds me a little bit of a potsticker filling. I thought they would dry out in the oven if uncovered, but they were moist and full of flavor. Very easy to make, only takes a minute to throw together and pop in the oven.
