directions

In mixing bowl, combine beef, eggs, onion, panko, 1/2 cup cilantro, soy sauce, garlic, cumin, salt, paprika and cayenne mixing lightly but thoroughly. Form into 1-ounce balls.

In sauté pan, heat oil; brown meatballs on all sides. Drain well on paper towels.

In a pan large enough to hold meatballs in one layer, bring water, lemon juice, pepper flakes and cinnamon to simmer. Add meatballs; simmer, covered, about 5 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through. Uncover and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
