Meals Under $10! | Korean BBQ (Turkey) Meatballs

The other day I had a craving for meatballs, but I didn’t want to make them with marinara sauce.  I’ve recently fell in love with the ‘Safeway Select’ brand of simmer sauces.  They have a whole line of about 10 sauces, and being the fake chef that I am, I’ve committed myself to trying them all.

My favorite by far has been the Korean Barbeque Simmer Sauce.  It’s similar to a bulgogi sauce.  I’ve used it to make chicken, beef + seafood dishes, and now I used it create this easy dish for less than $10!

Here’s the recipe:

What you’ll need:

+ 16 oz (1 lb) bag of turkey meatballs

+ 18 oz jar of ‘Safeway Select’ Korean BBQ Simmer Sauce

+ 1-2 stalks of green onions (chopped)


1) In a large skillet cook meatballs thoroughly.

2) Add Korean BBQ sauce + cover with a lid.  Let the meatballs simmer for 15-20 minutes.  (I like the sauce to get sticky + caramelized so I tend to turn the fire up a little + cook a little longer.)

3) Take meatballs off of the stove + plate.

4) Garnish with green onions.

5) Enjoy!

My plated meal:

 I served the meatballs with brown rice + garlicky green beans.  You can serve with brown rice, rice noodles or quinoa + a vegetable of your choice.
