Cook the very best Meatballs in Honey Buffalo sauce.
These meatballs are soft inside and a bit crunchy outside. Savory, hot and spicy! So yummy-licious!
You can make this extremely hot by adding more chili sauce. If you want it not so hot because you have kids in the house, don’t worry because you can still make it buffalo style with 1-2 tbsp hot sauce. And you can easily adjust it to very spicy by adjusting the chili sauce to 1/4 cup. I know you want it very hot, so you can use Franks Hot Chili Sauce or Sriracha Sauce. This recipe was adapted from Carlsbadcravings but I tweaked some ingredients to Filipino style including the ingredients.
This recipe is best to serve with rice or pasta.
Approximately 45 meatballs

1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoons black pepper
Honey Buffalo Sauce:
1 (200g) regular pack Hunts tomato Tomato sauce
1/4 cup (+ 1 tablespoon) honey
2-3 tbsp pineapple mango jam (optional)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch (diluted in 4 tbsp water)

For the meatballs:

Place it in tray and freeze for 10 minutes to set before frying. Deep Fry it in oil until lightly golden brown about 5-10 minutes. Drain from oil and set aside.
For the buffalo Sauce:
In a pan, add all of the Honey Buffalo Sauce Ingredients and stir to combine (Add hot sauce according to your preference, I’m not so into hot and spicy food so I added very little just to add flavor.) Add meatballs and cook.
Cover and cook on medium to low heat for 20 minutes, gently stirring until sauce is thick. Adjust salt, pepper to taste and stir in additional hot sauce and add sesame oil.
Ready to serve and enjoy!
