Teriyaki Meatballs Meal Prep

So versatile, these Teriyaki Beef Meatballs can be served as a meal with steamed rice and veggies OR as an appetizer! The BEST part? The meatballs cook up in less than 15 minutes in your air fryer.

What to serve with Teriyaki Meatballs?  Here are some suggested combos:

  1. White Rice and Green beans
  2. Cauliflower rice and Broccoli
  3. Stir-fry with carrots, bell pepper, and Edamame
  4. Yakisoba noodles, carrots, and baby bok choy

After cooking meatballs in the air fryer, I will never bake them in the oven again. The insides stay nice and tender while the outsides get a slight crisp on them. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze for later use in the FoodSaver Microwavable Meal Prep Bags (which is why I love my Foodsaver®).  I have included those directions in the notes.
