This Gochujang Meatballs appetizer was a BIG HIT at our recent neighborhood party so I decided to share! I used FROZEN mini cocktail meatballs and it can be made in the Instant Pot or on stove-top. The sauce is based on my Korean fried chicken sauce recipe that uses lots of garlic, ketchup, gochujang and maple syrup — soooo you KNOW it’s gonna be YUMMY!!
I recently came up with this Gochujang Meatballs appetizer idea when I was trying to make something for our neighborhood Halloween party. On Halloween night, my neighbors love to just sit out on the driveway around a fire pit and share food, drinks and chat while giving out candy to the kids – whenever they come by.
Sometimes we even chase after them – the ones who are too shy to come up to such a big crowd. HAHAHA..
I love being part of this group because it sure beats opening the door all evening, every time some kids come by which can get a bit tiring after a while. And kids also love it because they feel as one kid once said – “it’s very efficient”. 🤣😂 One-stop and they get about 10+ house visits worth of candies.
I even heard one boy say “Oh, wow, I hit the jackpot!! All the houses on this street are here??”
I was planning to cook something properly this year but I had too much going on that day and I knew I was not going to have enough time to make something. So.. I brainstormed and came up with this idea of using my Sweet Gochuajng sauce that I developed for a Korean Fried Chicken dish a couple of years ago (for a restaurant) for cocktail meatballs.
