Asian Turkey Meatballs – Recipe & Video

I love meatballs and use all types of ground meat regularly. It is versatile, lower in fat, and extremely flavorful when combined with the right ingredients. These Asian-style meatballs have a ton of flavor from garlic, ginger, and cilantro. Add in the citrus dipping sauce and you’ll have trouble keeping these crowd pleasers around for long!
