Taste of Home: Korean-style Pork Meatballs

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!

Korean-style pork meatballs

Here are five reasons why I love meatballs:

  1. It can be served as snacks, appetizers, or main dish.
  2. Is not temperature sensitive so it can be transported for a picnic or a cocktail party with friends.
  3. Its bite sized.
  4. It’s filled with tons of great flavor.
  5. 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.

  • 3 pieces spring onions, finely chopped

  • 1small size red or yellow capsicum
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • flour

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Put the sesame oil in a frying pan and heat it up. Gently put the meatballs into the pan. Deep fry the meatballs with a medium fire until it turns golden brown.

My week is quite easy cause we have a long weekend as Cambodians celebrate Pchum Ben (it’s like All Saints and All Souls Day for us). How about you, Rhonda?
