Hawaiian Meatballs ~ Brainy Island Exotic!

Dinner in Hawaii...tonight???

So simple and yet so island exotic. Hawaii brings thoughts of beaches and coconuts. Exactly, why this dish is called 'Hawaiian' meatballs. You will need: Sesame Teriyaki sauce, ground beef (or turkey), grated organic coconut, bread crumbs, one large garden fresh green pepper and one whole onion. Also, you should have on hand heavy cream and dried herbs; all of this is to be mixed into the ground meat and shaped into meatballs. As a side, any rice medley will do.

To begin, make the meatballs mixing 1 pound of ground meat, about 1/4 cup of grated coconut and 1/4 cup dried bread crumbs along with 1/4 cup of heavy cream and fresh dried herbs: mint and sage as a bit of cinnamon basil if you have fresh from your backyard or window sill garden.

Fry formed meatballs in a large skillet in olive oil and coconut oil on high heat.  Once browned, turn down the heat and add 4 tbs of beef stock. Let the meatballs simmer on med. heat for 6-8 min covered.

Next, remove lid and add 1/4 cup of Sesame Teriyaki sauce. With the lid off as you stir, a thick glaze will caramelize as the sauce bubbles up around the meatballs. Remove from heat the meatball skillet setting aside while in a separate skillet, saute the green pepper and onion in coconut oil. Let them sizzle away as you prepare a rice side.
