Instructions

1
  • Add 1 cup (2 cups) water and 1/8 (1/4 tsp) tsp salt to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, using a strainer, rinse rice until water runs clear.
  • Add rice to the boiling water, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. (NOTE: Reduce heat to low if water is boiling over.)
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.
2
  • Meanwhile, add beef and pork mix, panko, half the sesame oil and half the soy sauce to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then combine.
  • Roll mixture into 8 (16) equal-sized meatballs.
3
  • Arrange meatballs on an unlined baking sheet.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven until golden-brown and cooked through, 12-14 min.**
4
  • Meanwhile, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
  • Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Peel, then mince or grate 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) ginger.
  • Add apricot spread, vinegar, cornstarch, half the ginger, remaining soy sauce, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar, 1/8 tsp (1/4 tsp) pepper and 1/2 cup (1 cup) cold water to a medium bowl. Season with salt, then whisk to combine.
5
  • When meatballs are almost done, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add prepared sauce mixture from (step 4), then broccoli and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp and sauce has thickened slightly, 3-4 min.
  • Remove from heat.
6
  • When meatballs are done, add them to the pan with sauce and veggies, then toss to coat.
  • Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in remaining sesame oil. Season with salt.
  • Divide rice between bowls. Top with meatballs and veggies.
  • Spoon any remaining sauce over top.
