Ingredients for Asian Meatball Recipe

INGREDIENTS

It’s best not to single out an ingredient in this recipe as being all-impotant, they all are! The finely diced red pepper adds colour while the water chestnuts add flavour and crunchiness. The garlic and ginger add bold hits of flavour while the soy sauce and miso paste add the right amount of sauce to compliment the quantity of meat.

The meatballs rolled out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet ready to be baked.

MEATBALLS

Although we tested this recipe using both beef and pork, the blend of both ground turkey and chicken makes these morsels of goodness more tender. As with all our recipes, feel free to experiment with ingredients and quantities until you get a taste that you enjoy most.

GARNISH

Once the meatballs are fully cooked (to be sure, take one out of the oven at the 15-minute mark and check for doneness), add the flavourful sauce and toss to coat evenly. Then add my suggested combination of scallions chopped on an angle, chopped salted peanuts and sesame seeds as an inviting garnish. Transfer to an attractive bowl and serve straight away, remembering to present cocktail picks for ease of enjoyment.

Here are some additional party-friendly recipes you might find equally wonderful. Try our CRAB DIP and our CHEESE PUFFS plus this RED PEPPER DIP and our simple BLUE CHEESE SHORTBREADS.
