This was pretty good. I was so tempted to throw additional vegetables, onions, or even garlic in but decided to follow the recipe exactly, as possible. It didn't need them. It was fast for me to make, because I had rice leftover and red peppers already sliced from the freezer I defrosted. I used baby carrots and sliced them into small matchsticks. So, the meatballs didn't roll around I cut them in half. The cook times were right, except I had to cook the carrots and peppers for at least 5 minutes. I used an 8oz pack of fresh snow peas, so I steamed them in the microwave for 6 minutes before using. When I went to add the sauce, I realized I only had 1/3 cup left. The amount was fine. The only thing is, it only made 3 servings and not 6. Also, I noticed a slight hot kickback. I found that odd because the meatballs and the hoison sauce are both sweet. It is also a tad salty, but that is to be expected with precooked meat and bottled sauce. I would consider making it again, though, just for how quick it was to make and it did have plenty of flavor.
