Sheet Pan Sesame Glazed Meatballs

Hello and welcome to Sunday Supper. I absolutely love this dish! It’s like beef and broccoli but, dare I say…better. Tender, juicy meatballs, seasoned with chili garlic sauce and glazed with hoisin and toasted sesame seeds. The oven-roasted broccoli florets are slightly crisp and seasoned with sesame oil and salt. The whole dish is a perfect match of flavor and texture – simply roasted all together on the same sheet pan for a simple, quick Sunday Supper. Let’s do it – Sheet Pan Sesame Glazed Meatballs!

After the 20 minutes in the oven, pull the sheet pan and temp the meatballs. They should read 160 degrees on an instant read meat thermometer. Switch the oven to broil – leave the oven rack in the upper middle position. Use a brush to brush the hoisin sesame glaze on the meatballs, coating the tops and sides of each meatball.

Once glazed, place the tray back in the oven. Watch them, we only want the glaze to begin sizzling. Turn the tray to get an even glaze-sizzle on all the meatballs. This should only take a few minutes. Pull the tray.

I really love this take on Beef with Broccoli. The meatballs are moist and tender, with so much flavor! The recipe and method for these meatballs is a great thing to keep in your back pocket – they would be great as a meal prep recipe. They are also versatile, so they can go along with noodles; or in soup; throw them on a salad, wrap them in a tortilla with slaw.

Thank you so much for joining me today for Sunday Supper, I do hope you give this quick and easy Sheet Pan Sesame Glazed Meatballs a try! Take care and be well, xo Kelly

    Easy? I’m there. I really like the idea of cooking the meatballs and broccoli together, because that makes things even easier. Off to the store for some Hoisin sauce. It’s a beautiful sunny day, but it’s still cool with high winds off and on, mostly on. This is a perfect Sunday supper when we want something warm, easy and good. I’m going to make an extra batch of meatballs because men and meatballs are a happy combination. We have a new baby conure at my house. In true conure fashion, she lost her shyness. It isn’t even 24 hours and she has taken over the house. She makes the best noises, and sounds like a cricket imitating a frog, if you can imagine that sound! Happy Sunday and hugs to Kelly, Alex, Terry, the terrific trio, and the blog sisters. Tiberius and Dana send greetings to the fur babies.
