The hoisin sauce is what really makes this an Asian meatball, it really changes the flavor of the meatball. You could definitely make a homemade meatball, and that would be awesome, but if you are trying to get many dishes on the tables at the same time, do yourself a favor and just buy store bought, frozen meatballs…
1 package-16 ounces frozen meatballs, thawed and baked until warm and brown
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup blackberry preserves-I used sugar free variety
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the hoisin sauce and the blackberry preserves, stir to combine and heat through, but don't boil. Put the meatballs in a serving bowl and pour the sauce over the meatballs and stir to combine. Keep warm in a small crackpot or over low heat.
