I love meatballs – may it be pork meatballs, beef meatballs, chicken meatballs! Whether it is served as an appetizer or a main dish, with pasta or steamed rice, with soup or bread, with sweet or spicy sauce, deep fried or oven-cooked – I love it and so does the rest of the family!
Here are five reasons why I love meatballs:
- It can be served as snacks, appetizers, or main dish.
- Is not temperature sensitive so it can be transported for a picnic or a cocktail party with friends.
- Its bite sized.
- It’s filled with tons of great flavor.
- I love the aromatic smell of the mixture of meat and veges (before deep frying).
Since my son loves it too, I made this Korean-style pork meatballs this morning (before I went to work) for his snacks at school.

- Put the minced pork meatballs in a mixing bowl. Add spring onion, carrot, bread crumbs, black pepper and soy sauce. Mixed properly by blending them with your hands.
- Take some of the mixture and form it into balls, then flatten it. Roll the meatballs in the flour. Dip the meatballs in the egg.
