Image for Pineapple Turkey Teriyaki Meatballs


1-1.5 lbs. ground turkey
1/2 cup Kikkoman® Panko Bread Crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
1/3 cup crushed pineapple WITH juice (or crush up 2 slices of pineapple from a can)
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp of cornstarch
1 tsp of salt
1 egg


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs, milk, and crushed up pineapple. Be sure to add a little bit of the pineapple juice too! Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, salt, and ground turkey. Mix it all together with your clean hands. Add the small bowl of breadcrumbs, pineapple, and milk into the large bowl of ground turkey. Mix until all of the ingredients are fully combined.
Prepare a baking sheet with foil and a generous coat of non-stick spray.
Make small meatballs (about 1.5 inches in diameter or so) and place them on the baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. Bake for 20 minutes and begin preparing the teriyaki glaze.

For the delicious Kikkoman Teriyaki glaze sauce:
Put 1/2 cup of Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce into a measuring cup.
Add the sugar and mix it up until the sugar is dissolved.
Add a little bit of water until the mixture measures 2/3 of a cup.
Add the cornstarch and mix until smooth.
When the meatballs are almost done, prepare a small frying pan with a generous coat of non-stick spray over medium heat.
Add the ingredients from the measuring cup into the pan and whisk constantly until it comes to a boil.
Once bubbling, remove it from the heat.
Pour the tasty teriyaki glaze over the meatballs.
Serve with brown rice, fried rice, veggies, or whatever else you love!


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.
