Sorry for all you Titan and Jaguar fans, but I am afraid this won't measure up to "the game of the year"...hope I am wrong....doubtful though!
So to spice up the game, try these great meatballs. The sauce is a spicy peanut sauce that goes so well with the meatballs. After you cook the meatballs you could skewer them and have your guests dip the meatballs in the sauce or you could place the cooked meatballs and sauce in a slow cooker on low setting and guests can just use a fork. If you want to make them more of a meal, get some of your favorite fried rice as a side dish...perfect!
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs (blended until really fine)
1/4 cup finely minced or grated onion
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tbl soy sauce
1 egg beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl combine all above ingredients and mix well. Shape them into about 30-35 meatballs. Place them on an ungreased baking pan and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until browned and cooked thoroughly.
1 tbl canola oil
1/4 cup minced or grated onion
1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tbl brown sugar
1 tbl lime juice
1 tbl fish sauce or soy sauce
1/4 tsp cayenne
In a large saute pan heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook about 3-4 minutes until tender. Add coconut milk and peanut butter and stir until combined. Add the remaining ingredients until well blended. Reduce heat to low until thickened.
You can add the meatballs to the sauce or pour the sauce in a serving bowl. I like the idea of a bite size snack for dipping....your choice.
Have a great Monday Night Game!
