Ever since Zach and I moved to southern Wyoming, I have missed the modern conveniences of having a ton of restaurants to choose from for our weekly date nights. I miss the luxury of being able to have my choice of grocery stores, and I definitely don’t enjoy having to drive more than two hours to get to an Asian market. Living in the Denver metro area spoiled us to the core, and although we miss these conveniences we have learned to adapt.

Since moving to what I like to call “the middle of nowhere USA,” we have definitely started making our restaurant favorites at home. This is especially true with Asian-inspired dishes. Zach and I are obsessed with all thing Asian food related, and making it at home isn’t difficult! It’s actually quite easy, and I have this One Pan Turkey Zucchini Meatballs in Bangkok Peanut Sauce™ to prove it!

This one pan turkey zucchini meatballs recipe is everything I crave in a comforting weeknight meal. It is bursting with flavor from both the sauce and the meatballs. It is perfect served on a bed of rice, or all by themselves with a side salad. I have even gone as far as throwing them into a sub roll and doing an Asian take on a meatball sub. Any way you slice it, these meatballs are just perfect for anyone looking for a piece of comfort on a busy weeknight!

Pairings for One Pan Turkey Zucchini Meatballs in Bangkok Peanut Sauce™
 


When it comes to Asian-inspired recipes, I tend to go a couple of different routes with beer pairings. I’ll go on a streak of only pairing with brown ales, but where peanut sauce and a tad of spiciness is concerned, I always think hoppier is better. That is why I love this recipe with a pale ale. A pale ale gives you that hoppy character without being overwhelming and palate-wrecking. A pale ale will really highlight the peanut flavor and tone down the spice from the crushed red pepper.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 6 teaspoons vegetable shortening
  • red food coloring
  • blue food coloring

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine the softened butter with the dark brown sugar and granulated sugar until well mixed.
  3. Add the eggs and continue mixing until the eggs are completely incorporated.
  4. Now pour the vanilla extract into the cookie dough and mixer for 30 seconds to combine.
  5. Add the chunky peanut butter to the bowl and mix for 2 minutes, or until the peanut butter is completely mixed into the dough.
  6. Now add the salt, baking soda, and flour and mix slowly for 2-3 minutes. The dough should be very sticky.
  7. Scoop the dough onto un-greased baking sheets (2-3 tablespoons per cookie). Lightly press the cookie down to form a small disk (do not use a fork!).
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Remove from the oven and let sit for a minute before moving to a cooling rack. Once the cookies are cool to the touch, move them to the refrigerator or freezer to cool completely.
  9. While the cookies are cooling, separate the white chocolate chips into 3 bowls and add 2 teaspoons of shortening to each bowl. Microwave for 60-90 seconds to melt the chocolate. Add red coloring to one of the bowls and blue to another.
  10. Once the cookies are cooled, place the cookies upside-down into the plain white melted chocolate to coat the top of the cookie. Place back in the refrigerator or freezer so that the chocolate can harden.
  11. To add the red and blue stripes, use a spoon to spread the red and blue chocolate over 1/3 of the cookie. Again, place back in the refrigerator or freezer to harden. Store in the refrigerator until serving.
