Chinese Beef Balls

For dinner tonight, I made my children Chinese Beef Balls with a flavourful sauce made of hoisin and garlic. It’s delicious and healthy, because I baked it instead of frying it, and the flavour palate is out of this world, you guys.


  • Half kilo of ground beef
  • A third cup of bread crumbs
  • One teaspoon of minced ginger
  • One teaspoon of minced garlic
  • One teaspoon of sesame oil
  • One egg

For the sauce:

  • Three tablespoons of hoisin sauce
  • A quarter cup of rice vinegar
  • Two tablespoons of soy sauce
  • Two teaspoons of minced ginger
  • One teaspoon of sesame oil


  1. Preheat your oven to about 200 degrees Centigrade.
  2. Make your meatballs by combining the ground beef, breadcrumbs, garlic, ginger, egg, and sesame oil. Mix together thoroughly.
  3. Line your baking sheet with wax paper (this was really helpful! I avoided getting the beef fat on the actual sheet with this!).
  4. Shape the beef into balls and line them along the baking sheet. Bake for about fifteen minutes, until the balls are nice and brown.
  5. Make your sauce while the balls are baking: combine all sauce ingredients.
  6. Once the balls are done, transfer them to a serving plate–you may experience some beef fat, so use tongs, and scrape the excess beef fat off each ball–and pour a little sauce over each ball.
  7. Serve hot with hot rice!
