Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 3 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/2 tbsp mild, 1 tbsp medium, 1 1/2 tbsp spicy and 2 tbsp for extra-spicy! Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Add peas halfway through cooking. When rice is done, remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
While rice cooks, peel, then mince or grate half the ginger (use all for 4 ppl). (TIP: If grating, mince the leftover pieces of ginger.) Combine beef, panko, half the ginger, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tsp Moroccan Spice Blend (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a large bowl. Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Arrange meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until golden-brown and cooked through, 8-10 min.**
While meatballs bake, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Roughly chop cilantro. Stir together sweet chili sauce, remaining soy sauce, 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and 1 1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce in a small bowl. (NOTE: Reference heat guide for chili garlic sauce.)
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 2-3 min. Add remaining ginger and remaining Moroccan Spice Blend. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 sec.
Add meatballs, then stir-fry sauce to the pan with veggies. Cook, stirring gently, until sauce thickens slightly and coats meatballs, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Add half the cilantro to rice, then fluff with a fork. Divide rice between plates, then top with meatballs, veggies and any sauce in the pan. Sprinkle remaining cilantro over top.
