Vietnamese Meatballs

-

As of late, I have been enjoying traveling the world. Maybe not traveling as much as experiencing the world through the articles of people, places, and food found in Christopher Kimble’s Milk Street Magazine. And in my journeys, I have learned many things and found some great recipes. Many of them keep showing up on my table or are shared at parties.

The newest issue is out, and I have quite a few new things already tagged to try. As my custom, I will use the recipes as jumping off point and tweak them to fit my eating style and pantry. That’s why there are so many amazing dishes out there to try. Everyone has their own spin and that keeps life interesting. Hope you enjoy my take on this yummy dish inspired by Asia flavors.

Vietnamese Meatballs

Meatballs

1 pound lean ground pork or ground chicken breast
1/3 cup chopped cilantro 
6 minced green onions
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 teaspoons cooking oil

Salad
2 medium carrots, shredded
2 tablespoons lime juice
Pinch of salt
Instructions

In a medium bowl, mixed together ground chicken, cilantro, green onions, water, fish sauce, sugar, and pepper until well incorporated.
Form into 20 meatballs, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

*Weight Watcher Freestyle Friends: Five meatballs and ¼ salad equal 4 Smart Points when made with pork. One Smart point when made with chicken breast. Enjoy!
