Asian Pork Meatballs

Asian Meatballs

Ingredients:

1 lb ground pork
1 egg, beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cups whole wheat breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese Five Spice
1/2 cup sesame seeds
Sesame oil
Handful chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)

Method:

Preheat oven 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Pour sesame seeds in a separate bowl and set aside. In a large bowl combine the first 6 ingredients. Form into golf ball-sized meatballs and roll each one in the sesame seeds. Place on cookie sheet and drizzle a tiny little drop of sesame oil on each meatball. (sesame oil is very potent so a little goes a long way). Bake for about 20 minutes. Garnish with cilantro.

I served it with a dipping sauce of soy sauce and sriracha but you can also use teriyaki , peanut satay, or even duck sauce if you want. I also used one of those bagged Asian slaw salads to pair them with for a light supper.
