Spicy Chinese Meatballs and Cauliflower Rice

Do you love Chinese food, but HATE how it leaves you feeling? You over-indulge on the buffet. Can you almost feel what I am thinking right now. Sluggish, bloated, stomach ache, and just about to fall asleep at your work desk. I get it! You feel gross.

What if you learned to cook Chinese food at home, minus the over load of MSG and over processed foods?

Ryan and I have learned to make several low fat, no msg, healthy Chinese dishes. Please do stay tuned on this blog as we chef them up for you to learn.

What you need….

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • chopped green onions
  • Garlic powder
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 1 egg
  • Honey
  • Bread crumbs
  • Siracha sauce
  • Teriyaki Sauce
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Soy sauce
  • Cauliflower rice (homemade or store bought)

Directions

Meat

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 egg
  • Salt & Pepper

Mix thoroughly and then make into 1/2 balls. Drizzle cast iron, my favorite, with olive oil and place meatballs into pan. You choose: either bake for 20 minutes on 350 or until golden brown OR you can stove top cook for about 20 minutes turning meatballs to keep from browning too much on one side.

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Teriyaki Siracha Sauce (you can buy the mix one together or mix together separately. The siracha will depend on the spice you want.)
  • 2 Tbsp of Honey
  • 1 Tsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Thoroughly whisk together then heat on low heat in your Wok or Cast Iron skillet for about 3-5 minutes. This will help your sauce to thicken when added to the meatball skillet.

Pour your spicy sauce over your meatballs and garnish with green onions to finish and let simmer while you finish your rice.

Cauliflower Rice

(Store bought or homemade)

Add to heated skillet and season with:

  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/2 Garlic Powder
  • Drizzle with Soy sauce

Sauté the rice for about 5-10 minutes or until tender.

Put it all together and enjoy a healthy, nutritious alternative.
