Ingredients

1 pound ground pork

3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced

1 tablespoon diced shallot

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

3/4 cup coconut aminos

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon fish sauce

juice of one lime

Directions

Add the meatball ingredients to a small mixing bowl and use your hands to mix until well combined. Next, use a cookie dough scoop or tablespoon to scoop out the pork mixture and form meatballs.

When the meatballs are formed, heat a skillet over medium heat and then add a tablespoon of avocado or coconut oil. Pan-fry the meatballs on each side for roughly 3-4 minutes until browned and cooked through.

While the meatballs are cooking, make the sweet and sticky sauce. Add all of the sauce ingredients to a small sauce pan. Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. The sauce will thicken even more as it cools.

Add the meatballs to the sauce and stir until they are well coated. Transfer the meatballs to a serving dish and garnish them with green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
