Sticky Pork Balls

Tell me a little person who doesn’t love a pork meatball … or a big person for that matter! This recipe is a great way to sneak those veggies in. It can all be blended together and the only time spent is in browning the meatballs and reducing the sauce.

You can also serve this dish as a dumpling soup with some coriander on top (just double the quantities for the sauce). Alternatively, you can reduce the sauce right down so that it’s sticky and gooey – ready for some finger-licking fun.

  • 250 mls beef broth (stock)

  • Place the vegetable mixture, mince, ginger, coconut aminos or tamari and egg in a large bowl. Season with pepper and mix well. Roll the mixture into walnut-sized balls.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the meatballs in batches for about 6 minutes, rolling them around to brown them on all sides. Drain on paper towel.
