Linda Stephen’s The Best Convection Oven Cookbook (Robert Rose) is full of super ideas. We’ve streamined her Asian-flavoured meatballs for you. If you’re short on time, buy meatballs and just make the sauce. it’s fabulous!
Prepare meatballs. Don’t bake. Place on a tray and freeze just until firm, then place in 1 or 2 large plastic bags and freeze. Freeze sauce in a separate container. Both will keep well at least 1 month. Sauce will also keep in refrigerator up to 3 days. Before serving, arrange frozen unbaked meatballs on 2 foil-lined trays and bake, following recipe above, allowing an extra 5 minutes to cook thoroughly. Reheat sauce in microwave or on stove, stirring often, just until warm.
