Noodles and Comapny
There has been growing popularity of meatballs and meatball restaurants nationwide over the past several months and experts are declaring bold, ethnic flavors as one of the biggest food trends for 2016 — namely Gochujang Sauce (pronounced Go-CHOO-jang), which they are hailing as the next Sriracha.
Gochujang is the next, must-try sauce and Noodles & Company is the first national fast-casual restaurant concept to put it on its menu with the addition of new Korean BBQ.
Imagine flavorful meatballs tossed with a sweet and spicy Korean-style Gochujang barbeque sauce — yum!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix ground chicken and beef with eggs, salt, and white pepper.
Portion and roll into 1-ounce-size balls and place on oiled sheet pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Place ginger, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, gochujang paste, and red chile flakes in a pan and bring to a boil.
Wisk cornstarch and water together and add into boiling sauce, stir until thickened.
Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add in heated meatballs and toss to coat completely with the sauce.
Place glazed meatballs on a serving platter and garnish with black and white sesame seeds.
