Ginger Pork Meatballs

I'm a bit obsessed with pork at the moment, cooking it at every opportunity. Pork belly, pork dumplings, pork chops and tonight I made pork meatballs. They were incredible. I served them on a bed of fried cabbage and boiled green beans with melted butter.

Meal ideas:

  • Fried cabbage and meatballs
  • Meatball casserole with sour cream, broccoli and grated cheese
  • Meatballs and roast veg
  • Zughetti and meatballs with a tomato based sauce
  • Cauliflower egg fried rice and pork meatballs
  • Meatballs and sauerkraut


  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. garlic (or 2 finely chopped garlic cloves)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1.5 tsp. ginger powder
  • finely chopped chives (as much you have/want)
  • 1/4 cup pecan flour
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered/grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • pecan oil/olive oil/lard for frying

Combine the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Roll the meat mixture into small balls.

In a skillet, non stick frying pan, or electric frying pan, heat the oil and fry the meatballs carefully until they are browned. I used pecan oil because the flavours work very well together. Move them into a casserole dish and bake at 180C/350F for 10 - 20 minutes depending on the size of your meatballs. Cut one in half to make sure they are cooked.
