Teriyaki Meatballs With Sesame Ramen

4 servings

A fabulous weeknight meal is always good to have in your back pocket. The meal that takes a few minutes to prepare, but tastes like you have been slaving all day in the kitchen. This is it my friends.

Easy teriyaki meatballs with ramen noodles. The sauce on the ramen takes a minute- no joke, and the teriyaki sauce is from a bottle- sometimes making things from scratch is not worth it. I am totally obsessed with ramen noodles, which pair perfectly with these meatballs. I also happened to use an extra secret ingredient. Everything bagel seasoning, I know, totally not an Asian spice, but with the sesame and the garlic and the onion flakes, it just gives it the perfect flavour.

This perfect weeknight meal is definitely worth gossiping about!
