These were delicious after a little bit of tweaking. I don't think I've ever made meatballs without some garlic, so I felt the need to add one large clove of minced along with a teaspoon of soy sauce, replacing the 1/2 teaspoon of salt, in the meat mixture. I also upped the amount of peppers used in the sauce and par-cooked them along with some chopped onion. I baked the meatballs instead of frying (350° for 22 minutes, flipping them halfway through the baking). Served over white rice. Next time I think I'll double the sauce.
