Smoked Spicy Korean-Style Gochujang Meatballs

I found this recipe on and it was a real crowd pleaser.  First time that I will be smoking them on the egg and really excite to do so since the egg makes everything taste better.



3              green onions, very thinly sliced

2              garlic cloves, minced

1              egg, lightly beaten

1              pound ground beef (I used lean ground Angus)

1/2         cup panko breadcrumbs

2              tablespoons gochujang (Korean chili paste)

1              tablespoon minced fresh ginger

1              teaspoon kosher salt

1/2         teaspoon ground white pepper

2              tablespoons canola oil, for pan-frying



1/3         cup apricot preserves

2              tablespoons gochujang (Korean chili paste)

1 1/2      tablespoons rice vinegar

1              tablespoon soy sauce

Garnishes: sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds


Set the egg up for 350 degrees and indirect with apple chips.  I made the meatballs a little bigger than the recipe suggests  and that added about 15 minutes to the total cook time.

I didn't bother garnishing them this time.  Delish!

    I've had a tub of gochujang sitting on my counter for far too long now; time to hit the grocery and start playing!  Thanks for the inspiration.   :)

    Man those look amazing.  Nice balls! 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Not sure why I torture myself like this. Currently fasting for bloodwork. I'm starving and those would really do well.

    We love Korean food, and I've been exploring how to cook some stuff in the last year or so. These look great!
