Blackstone Teriyaki Meatballs

Meatballs are so versatile, and one of the perfect things to make for a big dinner or a simple appetizer. We have a ton of them on the site (linked below), and for good reason. Everyone loves them, they use ground meat which is typically more cost-friendly than other cuts, and you can serve them with just about anything.

This version uses ground pork and some Togarashi seasoning as the stars of the show. That is, until the Bachan’s enters the room. We are obsessed with this stuff, and for good reason. It is amazing, and quickly became one of our most-reached-for condiments.

You can tweak these in a number of different ways to suit your needs. Don’t have Togarashi? Sub in your favorite go-to Asian-inspired rub. Another great option is Jet Tila’s Fiery Sweet Bulgogi Blend from Spiceology.

Teriyaki Meatballs FAQ

Can this dish be made in advance?

Yes! This recipe is very convenient to make ahead of time and then reheat before serving. It is perfect to take to a party in a crock pot too, and is such a nice change-up from the typical meatballs you’ll find at these types of events!

What’s the best way to store and reheat leftovers?

Keep the leftover teriyaki meatballs in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days, max. Reheat in the oven in a covered dish with the extra sauce, in the microwave, or in a pan on the stove over low to medium-low heat. A slow cooker is also a good option for reheating.

How can you spice these up a bit?

Want to add a little kick? Use the spicy version of Bachan’s sauce, or add some Sriracha drizzled over the top along with the sweet and sour. You can also mix in some red pepper flakes or extra Togarashi to the meatball mixture itself.

Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 3 tablespoons crushed pineapple
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons Togarashi (or another good Asian rub)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup Bachan's Japanese BBQ Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet and sour


  1. Mix together the ground pork, drained crushed pineapple, panko, milk, egg, and Togarashi in a bowl until they are well combined.
  2. Form into small 1"-1 1/2" meatballs.
  3. Preheat your griddle over medium heat.
  4. Lay down the oil on the griddle and put the meatballs on.
  5. Brown on all sides, turning frequently.
  6. Mix together the pineapple juice with 1/4 cup of your Bachan's. Gather the meatballs all together on the griddle in a bunch, pour this mixture over the top, and immediately cover with a large dome.
  7. Using the dome, move the meatballs around a bit on the griddle so they get coated with the sauce. This will also assure that your meatballs are fully cooked.
