Make flavorful Asian-spiced pork meatballs with ginger, tamari, and sesame for a perfect party appetizer or delicious meal with rice.
By Carmen Sturdy
Each meatball in this recipe is packed full of flavour with crunchy ginger, spring onions, garlic, mint, coriander and pieces of shredded carrot. Using only 2 tablespoons of almond flour ensures the meatballs remain juicy and tender and won’t dry out, even if you accidentally let them bake for a few minutes too long. Brushing the meatballs with sauce half way through baking not only enhances the flavour but also gives them a beautiful golden glaze and helps the sesame seeds stick to the sides.
The slightly sweet sauce can be served alongside the meatballs for dipping at a cocktail party, or poured over the meatballs and served with cauliflower rice as a hearty dinner. These meatballs are incredibly easy to make and require less than 20 minutes to prepare. I recommend making an extra batch to store in the freezer as these are great to have on hand for unexpected guests or an impromptu pot luck.
