Thai Style Pork Meatballs

These juicy Thai-style beef meatballs are deliciously flavored with lemongrass, ginger and garlic. As an appetizer these meatballs are superb with the intensely flavorful dipping sauce, however they also make a top notch fundamental course.

So these Thai-fashion pork meatballs gained’t come as a wonder to you. I positive love me a few traditional Italian meatballs with rich tomato sauce, but the Thai model is certainly great too.

Thai Style Pork Meatballs

The lemongrass, ginger, garlic, cilantro and fish sauce deliver the red meat meatballs their unmistakable Thai taste. It’s simply scrumptious and not only for a Thai food lover, both.

My sister, Conny is currently travelling us from Canada. She simply arrived the previous day when I made the meatballs. Over 24 hours of travelling can make you truely hungry (in particular in case you don’t like aircraft meals).
