1 cup of ground Ritzs crackers

1 cup chopped green onions

8 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup gochujang

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 425°.

2. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or greasing the baking sheet with avocado oil.

3. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, Ritz crackers, chopped green onions, and minced garlic and gently mix.

4. Add the soy sauce, garlic cloves, gochujang, sesame oil, and black pepper to the bowl. Mix until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.

5. Begin forming meatballs by taking a handful of the ground beef mixture and rolling it between your hands to form a ball about the size of a golf ball.

6. Repeat the process until all the ground beef mixture is used. This should make approximately 24 to 26 meatballs. 7. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are browned. Serve with white rice and kimchi and enjoy!
