Korean-Style Meatballs with Sweet and Spicy Gochujang Glaze

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend!  This is a special week for me because I’m coming up on my 50th blog post!  Keep checking the blog this week because I’ll be doing a cookbook giveaway to celebrate this small {but exciting} milestone!  
I saw todays’ recipe featured on one of my favorite blogs, SpoonForkBacon.  These girls really know how to do it!  Not only do they have some amazingly unique recipes but their photography and food styling is out of this world.  I just about died when I discovered their blog!  When I saw their photo of these delicious meatballs, I knew I just had to pop one in my mouth immediately!!!
I am crazy for the Korean-style sauce that gets painted on these guys.  It’s extremely flavorful and spicy -- I couldn’t help thinking that I wanted to take this from appetizer to entree and serve these meatballs over sticky rice with the sauce poured over the top.  YUM!
