Pinterest Review: Honey-Sriracha Turkey Meatballs!

Summer is on the way and that means I need to clean up my diet a little bit before I squeeze into a bathing suit, ya’ feel me? So, I am meal prepping and trying new recipes out 🙂 This brings me to the holy grail of ideas…Pinterest! If you’re like me, you immediately get overwhelmed with the plethora of ideas that you could try, but probably never will, that pop up immediately when you log into Pinterest. My heart starts pounding, a panic attack ensues…

My suggestion is to narrow in a little bit from “healthy meal prep” to a more specific type of meal. I had ground turkey on hand, so I searched for turkey meal prep and I found this delicious and spicy recipe. I followed the measurements exactly and Brian tested out the results with me! Here is my review of this meal and if it’s something to add to the rotation.

First, let’s start with the recipe. I did not create this recipe, so you can find it here.

INGREDIENTS LIST

I’m not the type of person that has rice vinegar and sesame oil laying around the house. Purchasing these made the meal quite a bit more expensive than I’d like, but if you have rice vinegar and sesame oil then you’re good to go! The rest of the ingredients I either had on hand, or weren’t too pricey to pick up at the store.

PREP WORK

Let me just say…ewwww!!! Combining everything in a bowl and rolling meatballs is uncomfortable. I really did not enjoy this process! ha, otherwise this was a quick and dirty step in the prep. The sauce was easy to make, but watch your eyes! It’s a spicy one.

FINAL REVIEW

The meatballs really don’t have much of a taste for everything that was put into them and are quite dry. The sauce is too spicy for me, but I’m a wimp with that taste. I felt it was dominated by sriracha, so I’d cut that down a little bit and add some more honey.

MALE PERSPECTIVE

meh. they don’t taste like anything.

FINAL DECISION

I will not be recreating this recipe. The lack of taste and spicyness weren’t worth the nasty prep work and cost! It might be a great meal for someone else, though! Would you give this recipe a try? Let me know what you think if you do :)!
