• Pork Meatballs (for Vietnamese Subs!)

    So great! – we love meatballs and the girls thought that having a meatball fall out of their sandwich was the best thing!  I’m just writing down what I did, because I’m not going to go to the trouble of rolling meatballs unless I’m going to have a couple of meals…and this is another recipe that I’d love to add more spice to, but didn’t, for the girls.  I also think that these would make a great appetizer, and they freeze very well.  From Dinner with Julie!

    Pork Meatballs (for Vietnamese Subs!)

    Meatballs – makes 40Pork Meatballs (for Vietnamese Subs!)

    2 lbs. ground pork

    1/2 c. EACH chopped fresh basil AND chopped green onion

    1 small head of garlic, peeled and finely minced

    2 T. EACH fish sauce AND brown sugar

    1 t. EACH salt AND freshly ground pepper

    1 T. + sriracha (optional)

    Preheat the oven to 400, line a baking sheet with parchment and in a large bowl combine all of the ingredients and mix well – you’ll need to finish off the mixing with your hands to get it well blended.  Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls – they can sit quite close on the baking sheet – and then bake for 15 minutes, give the pan a little shake to get them to roll over, then bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.  If you need to, break one open to check…but if you really rolled 1-inch meatballs they should for sure be done.

    Decorate your sandwich as you desire with the ideas below, we thought they were marvelous (Brock and I added a lot of sriracha to ours) – enjoy!


    2 c. grated carrot mixed with 1/4 c. rice vinegar and 1/4 c. sugar – to ‘pickle’

    thinly sliced cucumber – use a vegetable peeler

    mayonnaise, sriracha and fresh cilantro

    baguette pieces or skinny buns
