I can spend more time for cooking these days. But, when my children were young, my husband was always away from home and I was working full time, I was too busy. On top of that, I started to suffer from depression and I struggled to prepare meals for my children. ‘Quick & Easy’ was the key to my survival. This is one of those ‘Quick & Easy’ dishes. Keep a bag of already cooked meatballs in freezer, then this dish can be ready in 10 minutes.


3 to 4 Servings


500g Frozen Cooked Meatballs
1/2 cup Water
3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 tablespoon Mirin *OR Ketchup for young children
1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
1/2 tablespoon Potato Starch Flour *mixed with 1 tablespoon Water
Toasted Sesame Seeds

  1. Combine Water, Sugar, Soy Sauce and Rice Vinegar in a large saucepan or pot, start heating over medium high heat. Add Frozen Cooked Meatballs, cover with a lid, and bring to the boil, shaking the saucepan occasionally.
  2. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low, and cook, occasionally shaking the saucepan, for about 10 minutes.
  3. Drizzle the potato starch mixture over, stirring, and mix well. When the sauce is thickened, it’s done. Sprinkle with Toasted Sesame Seeds and serve with freshly cooked rice and steamed vegetables or salad.
