My sticky asian meatballs are truly a one pan, flavourful dish that you’ll be craving again and again! Start with browning the homemade meatballs then add the sauce mixture and reduce until thick and sticky. Toss in some sugar snap peas, bok choy and scallions. Serve with rice and chopped coriander for a final finish.

Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and set aside.
Place all the ingredients for the meatballs in a bowl and thoroughly combine. Take small pieces of the meat mix and roll into meatballs and set aside on a plate.
Place a large high sided pan over a medium high heat and add 1-2 tbsp of sunflower oil. Fry the meatballs until browned on all sides (do this in 2 batches if the meatballs don’t all fit at once). As soon as the meatballs are browned, add the sauce to the pan and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes until the liquid is reduced and starting to become sticky. Stir regularly to coat the meat balls.
Add the bok choy, spring onions and sugar snap peas to the pan and toss gently to coat in the sauce. Cover with a lid and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the veggies are just tender, be sure not to over cook them or they will just turn soggy.
Serve the whole pan straight to the table, sprinkle with sesame seeds, coriander leaves and bowls of rice.
