These Korean Meatball Sliders are absolutely amazing! They are oozing with flavor and texture and are super easy to make.
Lately, I have become addicted to Korean flavors. I can’t seem to get enough.
My fascination started when a friend of mine introduced me to Bulgogi, a traditional Korean stir-fry. Then I discovered Bibimbop – a traditional Korean rice bowl – and couldn’t get enough. I’ll be sharing my recipe for Bibimbop soon, stay tuned.
I’ve been trying to incorporate Korean flavors into all kinds of recipes, like these Korean Meatball Sliders.
The meatballs come coated in a flavorful sauce that is perfect on its own or you can whip up my easy Korean Glaze that has a slight sweet heat. The sauce has only a few ingredients and comes together in a few minutes. So you have a few options, depending on your preference.
To give the sliders texture, I piled a crunchy, Asian inspired slaw on top. The slaw is crunchy and flavorful. The bite from the vinegar is a great contrast to the sweetness of the meatball glaze. And, you can’t forget that unmistakable flavor from the sesame oil.
The star of the sliders are the Korean flavored meatballs. I used the Korean BBQ Beef & Pork variety of Cooked Perfect Fresh Meatballs. They come packaged with a great sauce that goes perfectly with this recipe.
Cooked Perfect Fresh Meatballs are fresh (not frozen) and fully cooked. They come in a microwave steam pouch that heats the meatballs perfectly in two minutes while keeping them moist and delicious. They’re an easy solution for dinner tonight.
I love that Cooked Perfect Fresh Meatballs are made from premium meats with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. You can taste the flame broiled flavor in every mouthwatering meatball. Find a store here.
Cooked Perfect Fresh Meatballs come with two easy recipes on the package so you can easily get dinner on the table.
You can find all four flavors of fresh Cooked Perfect Fresh Meatballs – Italian Style Beef & Pork, Korean BBQ Beef & Pork, Sundried Tomato & Roasted Garlic Chicken, and Italian Style with Parmesan & Mozzarella Chicken – in the refrigerated meat & poultry section of grocery stores in the the Mid-Atlantic, North East and Chicago regions.
