How to Make It
1. Gently stir together pork, panko, egg, scallions, and pepper in a large bowl until blended. Shape mixture into 24 (1-inch) meatballs. Place meatballs in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker coated with cooking spray.
2. Stir together plum sauce, water, soy sauce, Sriracha, and ginger in a small bowl, and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook on high until the meatballs are firm and a thermometer inserted into 3 to 4 meatballs registers 145°F, about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Transfer meatballs to a platter with a slotted spoon, reserving sauce mixture in slow cooker. Cover meatballs with aluminum foil to keep warm.
3. Pour sauce mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a large skillet, discarding solids. Bring sauce mixture to a boil over high, stirring occasionally. Cook, stirring occasionally, until glaze is reduced to about 1⁄3 cup, about 4 minutes. Stir in rice vinegar. Add meatballs to skillet, and stir to coat. Add more rice vinegar to taste.
4. Serve meatballs and sauce over hot cooked rice; garnish with additional scallions, if desired.
