One of the best things about these meatballs is that they are ready in less then 30 minutes.
These meatballs have an amazing flavor. Using both ground pork and ground beef keeps them tender and gives a nice richness to them.
The dipping sauce is so tasty and has just a hint of sweetness from the honey that sets off the hoison garlic marinade really well. (affiliate link) They are easy to make ahead of time, which is great for entertaining.
Just bake them the day before and then reheat in the oven or microwave and then toss them with the reheated sauce.
The meatballs have a delightfully flavorful taste and the sauce gives them an extra boost. Just skewer them for easy serving. Your guests will think you spent all day making them.
