So it’s officially summer. That means one thing for me BBQ. I love to cook and eat outside when the weather permits.
So I am going to make some pretty simple yet delicious pork meat ball kebabs.
My meat ball kebabs are inspired from my time in Thailand eating street food.
So what you will need for the meat balls
- 500g of pork mince
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 tbsp of light soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp Thai fish sauce
- 3 or 4 dried red chilies
Take your garlic and chilli and blitz it up in a food processor.
Don’t worry too much about getting it very fine as it is a rustic BBQ dish.
Now add your meat along with the fish sauce and soy sauce. Mince the pork up very fine in the food processor.You are looking for a sausage meat consistency.
Start to make your meat balls. You can make any size that you like but it helps to keep it a regular size. I use a tablespoon to help keep some constancy.
Take a pan of softly boiling water and add you meat balls. It will only take a minute for them to cook. You will know when they are done as they will float to the top.
Drain you meat balls and let them cool slightly. You could eat the meatballs now if you liked and they are great in soups.
Now take some bamboo skewers and add the meat balls. I like to leave some space between them to aid in even cooking.
Now we are going to make the BBQ glaze.
You could glaze them with your favorite sauce such as sweet chili, But I am going to make my own glaze.
You will need
- A few drops Vinegar
- 1 1/2 tbsp Dark soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
- A good squirt tomato ketchup (optional to make it sticky)
Mix together your sauce ingredients in a bowl.
Using a pastry brush coat the meat balls all over. Heat up your grill and BBQ for a few minutes until glossy and piping hot.
Serve with diced green onions and cucumber slices.
