Asian Style Meatballs recipe

Ingredients

  • 500 grams ground pork
  • 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon dried chili flakes (depends how spicy your chili is...mine is from Thailand and very spicy)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (leaves and upper stem parts)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (scant, not packed)
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (patis)
  • 1/4 cup Ilocos vinegar (sukang Iloco)

Cooking Instructions

In a bowl mix salt, pepper, chili flakes, garlic, ginger, cilantro, and sugar until well blended.

In a bigger, non-reactive bowl, place ground pork. Add vinegar and fish sauce, then sprinkle with bread crumbs.

Add the spice mix from step one to the pork and mix with your hands until incorporated.

Cook a small amount of the mince mix to taste and adjust seasoning (and cook and taste again) as needed. Leave the mince mix in the fridge for an hour.

After the mixture has rested, shape into balls, patties, or logs and fry until just done...do not overcook! Watch them to make sure the sugar does not burn.
Serve immediately.
