This recipe adapted from Cooking with Sara: Asian Meatballs .
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds ( used 2 tablespoons, we like sesame seeds)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs ( used 3/4 cup spicy hot chipotle panko)
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
1 tsp.toasted sesame oil ( used regular sesame oil)
2/3 cup hoisin sauce *
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Combine ground beef, sesame oil, green onions, toasted sesame seeds, egg and breadcrumbs in a medium size bowl. Mix well and form into balls. Place on a baking sheet.
Add meatballs on the baking sheet to the 400 degree oven and bake for 15- 20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
Combine the hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, sesame oil and garlic in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 2 minutes. Stir frequently, you don't want it to burn.
Place meatballs on a serving dish and drizzle the glaze over the warm meatballs. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

As usual I didn't have hoisin sauce. I thought I had it but it's at Gregory's place, which doesn't help me in NY.
Looked up how to make my own hoisin sauce- used this RECIPE
