This recipe is originally from a Best of Bridge Cookbook. The original recipe calls for ground chicken or turkey for the meat (which I have had and that is really good too), I used ground pork because that is what I had and they were very yummy with pork too (the chicken or turkey would be leaner though). Don’t skip rolling them in sugar, this makes a delish caramelized crust.
– 1 lb ground pork, chicken or turkey
– 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
– 2 green onions, finely chopped
– 1Tbsp grated lemon zest
– 2 tsp cornstarch
– 1 tsp minced gingerroot
– 3 tbsp soy sauce
Preheat your oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine all ingredients and shape into meatballs (makes about 30). Roll meatballs in sugar and bake for about 15-20 mins (turning once), until brown and glazed. Serve with Sweet Asian Chili Sauce to dip.
