Duck fat for frying

Add to cart

1 whole egg to bind
2 tbsp white flour
Small bunch of mint, finely chopped and some for decoration

2 cm fresh ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, grated 
2 red chillies, one finely chopped and the second for decoration

Method

  1. To make these Asian Pork Meatballs, first mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl: minced pork, egg, mint, coriander, ginger, garlic and chilli
  2. With wet hands start rolling the mixture into golf ball sized meatballs and place them on a gently floured flat tray
  3. Using some of the leftover flour, sprinkle over the meatballs and shake the tray a little to make sure none of them are sticking
  4. Chill the meatballs in the fridge for half an hour
  5. Heat the duck fat to medium to high heat in a large frying pan. Ensure you have plenty of space between the meatballs or fry them in batches
  6. Set your Asian Pork Meatballs aside to rest for 5 minutes then serve them with yuzu ponzu sauce on the side for dipping.
  7. They are the perfect welcome for your guests with bubbles on arrival or with a slightly chilled pinot noir as a starter
