When I needed a break from soups, stews, and holiday food, this teriyaki meatball recipe came to the rescue.

This stir fry was easy to pull together thanks to a package of ground turkey, frozen green beans (they cook quickly), and a pantry friendly teriyaki sauce recipe from the Food Network.

No worries if you don’t feel like making your own teriyaki sauce, just pick up a jar of your favorite low sodium brand from the grocery store. But if you have time, Food Network’s version is perfect.

I made a double batch and froze half in the freezer, so the next time a teriyaki craving hits I’ll be prepared.

No ground turkey in the frig?

Why not use lean ground beef or ground chicken? They all work with teriyaki sauce. Then all you’ll need is a scoop of nutty brown rice, and you’ll have a healthy meal to shake up your holiday fare for sure.

Happy, healthy cooking!

Teriyaki Meatballs with Green Beans and Mushrooms
 
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 4 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoons red bell pepper, chopped into small pieces
  • 10 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 cups frozen green beans, thawed
  • 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 4 tablespoons green onion, sliced
Instructions
  1. Mix ground turkey, beef or chicken with 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce and 4 tablespoons sliced green onion.
  2. Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add coconut oil.
  3. Form meatballs with a tablespoon and drop into the skillet. Be sure to leave room between the meatballs so they will brown. If you don't they'll steam instead. Turn to brown all sides and cook through. Approximately 15 - 20 minutes.
  4. Heat a large wok or skillet over medium high heat and add sesame oil and red pepper. Fry for 3 minutes, then add mushrooms. Fry another 3 minutes then add beans. Fry for another 5 - 6 minutes until beans are heated through.
  5. Add meatballs and remaining 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce.
  6. Serve sprinkled with remaining green onion.

      You really can’t. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like them. It just occurred to me that you could easily turn this into an appetizer if you used Angie’s suggestion and combined beef with pork and made mini meatballs and sauce. Hmmmmmm . . . sounds like a plan! :)

      Good idea. I never think to combine ground meats. That sauce from Food Network was so easy, and you could easily kick it up if you like more garlic or ginger. Have a good weekend. :)

    Who doesn’t like a meatball? I’ve never used one in a stir-fry before, and it’s a great idea – something I should definitely be doing. The teriyaki sauce sounds terrific with this. And with the green beans and onions (not to mention other veggies) you’ve got a complete meal here – rice optional, IMO. Good stuff – thanks.

    Kristin, this sounds absolutely fabulous – I love the idea of adding terriyaki meatballs to a stir fry with delicious and healthy green beans and mushrooms (and brown rice) – it looks like a perfect family meal, especially at this time of year. Thanks for posting the recipe!

    Oh I am so hungry now! This stir fry sounds and looks really delicious! Too bad I have already cooked meatballs today, just in tomato sauce, so can’t even compare.. :D

    Nice quick stir fry! I like that you took the time to make the meatballs for a fun twist; I’m usually lazy and just throw it in the wok :P The green beans and mushrooms are a great match for teriyaki.
