Asian Flavored Meatballs or Meatloaf

Use the flavored meat mixture to make small meatballs or a single meatloaf.

1 pound ground turkey, or mixture of turkey/beef/pork
4 large scallions, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro (don't skip this ingredient)
1/4 cup egg beaters
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil (don't skip this either)
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs or oats
black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Form into small meatballs and saute in nonstick skillet until browned on all sides, or put the meat mixture into a loaf pan and bake at 350F for 50-60 minutes.

Serve with optional soy-ginger sauce:
1/4 cup brown sugar Splenda blend
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine), sake, or sherry
1/4 cup chopped peeled ginger root
1 teaspoon ground coriander
Combine ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved and the volume is reduced by 1/2. Strain through a sieve before serving.
4 servings

It's been some time since I've been on OH. I logged on today and saw that familiar post on next week's recipes. I love this one and will definitley make it this weekend or this coming week. Thanks for such a wonderful resource.

Question on meatballs, I love meatballs.
