Korean Style Meatballs

I know, I know.  Another spicy recipe but before you shake your head at me, realize that there’s juice and honey to mellow out the heat imparted by the gochujang {Korean pepper paste} and if you’re still not crazy about it, you can substitute the gochujang for tomato paste and you’ll still have yourself a fine meatball recipe.

  2. Roll into balls and set in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
