I was thrilled when I received my box of Thai Kitchen and SImply Asia products to try.  I am very familiar with both brands and have using them for years.  I love them!  They have such wonderful and delicious products!


The first product I tried was Simply Asia’s General Tso Stir Fry Sauce.

I’m hooked.  It was delicious!
General Tsao’s Meatballs
Source: Simply Asia
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 pouch Simply Asia General Tsao Stir-fry Sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
Mix breadcrumbs, egg, milk, garlic powder and ginger in a large bowl until well blended.  Add ground beef and mix well.
Shape into 1 inch meatballs and place on a foil lined baking sheet.

 

Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.  Drain, if needed.
 
In a large skittle bring Stir Fry Sauce and orange juice to a simmer over medium heat.  Add meatballs; toss to coat.
You can serve these as an appetizer just like this.  Or serve over sticky rice.
They were wonderful!  Next time I make these (and I will definitely be making these again!) I am going to buy 2 packets of the Simply Asia’s General Tsao’s Stir Fry Sauce so there is extra sauce to pour over the rice.  It was that good!
For entertaining, why not try a Satay Partay – a delicious chicken dish featuring Thai Kitchen’s Coconut Milk, Premium Fish Sauce, Red Curry Paste, Lemongrass and Peanut Satay Sauce
Peanut Sauce is one of my absolute favorite sauces!  And Thai Kitchen makes a wonderful one!  It has the right amount of peanut butter flavor and isn’t terribly spicy (which I appreciate.)  Doesn’t it look wonderful?



Another recipe that is now on my to do list is Thai Kitchen’s Ginger Teriyaki Lettuce Wraps.


Or, add a little zing to traditional party favorites with Thai Kitchen dipping sauces. Our Spicy Thai Mango dipping sauce puts a fruity twist on traditional spring rolls in this Zing Rolls recipe featuring Thai Kitchen’s Red Rice Noodles.
 
Whether entertaining a crowd or an everyday dinner with the family, Simply Asia Stir-Fry Sauces are the perfect way to create Real Asia, Real Fast at home. Try our mild, flavorful General Tsao Stir-Fry Sauce in Restaurant Style General Tsao Chicken or General Tsao’s Meatballs. Fans of ginger will enjoy the flavor our Ginger Teriyaki Stir-Fry Sauce brings to these Ginger Teriyaki Lettuce Wraps. Looking for a little more heat? Serve up these “Kung Wow” chicken wings with our Thai Kitchen Kung Pao Stir-Fry Sauce.
