Sweet sticky pork meatball and veggies rice
That's what we had for dinner tonight and judging how dinner time was quiet I believe I have won the seal of approval of my boys.
So if you feel like having something sweet and sticky for dinner as well here is the recipe:
For the pork meatballs:
500g of pork mince
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/2 brown onion
2 tbsp of cornflour
Mix all the ingredients together, form medium sized balls (or the size that you feel you will want to eat), place them on a plate and put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. All the recipes I have found deep fry the meatballs and then place in the marinade. We don't deep dry in our house so I pan fried them until golden brown and then placed them in the oven. Keep the pan aside for the sauce.
For the sauce:
1 Tbsp of runny honey
1 tsp of cornflour
1 cup of hot water
1 Tbsp of Terriyaki sauce (soy sauce will do if you don't have it)
Mix all the ingredients together in a jug and make sure everything is well mixed. Place it in the pan used for to fry the meatballs, bring to a boil and simmer on very low heat until it become sticky and thick.
Take the meatballs out of the oven and put them in the pan to coat them with the sticky sauce. At this stage you could even through a few sesame seeds if you want.
I hope you enjoy those as well as we did. I made a veggies rice with cashew nuts to go with it. It was very filling and delicious.
