  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2   Tbs  mirin (rice vinegar)

  • In bowl mix together your hoisin sauce, soy sauce, mirin, garlic, brown sugar, and green onions.

To cook on the stove top:
Place meatballs into a large skillet with a lid, pour sauce over top.   Set to medium, and bring to a slow boil, reduce heat to low and let simmer 20 minute until meatballs are tender and the sauce has started to thicken.
Remove lid, and reduce further, or you can stir in a slurry made with 2 Tbsp of Cornstarch and water, and cook until sauce thickens to desired consistency.
