Ground meat can be used in many ways, but meatballs are by far the most popular form of cooking ground meat. About a year ago I showed you a recipe for oven-baked meatballs with a creamy mushroom sauce, where the meatballs were simply cooked in the oven.

In today’s post I will show you a variant for meatballs that are fried & then cooked together with teriyaki sauce & veggies (bell peppers, broccoli & mushrooms) to the end in one and the same pan. Super easy to prepare & all you need is a large pan with a lid. Have fun cooking!
