  • Quick Stovetop Method: If you're in a rush, you can simmer the meatballs in the sauce mixture on the stovetop for 15-20 minutes. Perfect for a quick meal, party, or tailgating.

  • Want something sweeter, or less spicy? Try the recipe with Legend Larry's Sweet Thai Chili sauce instead of the Hot Garlic, and leave out the honey.

  • For a quick meal Serve these meatballs over white rice with a side of roasted carrots. Add a dollop of Japanese mayo to help with the heat and a dash of soy sauce for the rice for an extra flavor boost.
