Method

  1. Heat the grill. In a bowl, mix together the pork, garlic, lemongrass, fish sauce and half the coriander. Season with pepper. Mix well and form into 8 patties. Rub each one with the oil and a sprinkling of sugar, then place on a rack in a baking tray.
  2. Grill the patties for 3 mins each side until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, cook the rice noodles following pack instructions. Drain the warm noodles and serve with the patties, chopped spring onions, remaining coriander and a drizzle of sweet chilli dipping sauce.

I steamed these, and because I forgot both the sesame oil and the sugar, rolled them in toasted sesame seeds afterwards. You need to steam until no pink meat remains; how long this takes depends how big you've made your meatballs. I have frozen some for dropped into Thai chicken broth. Also good for steaming inside lettuce leaves for a light supper.

Delicious! Lovely textures and fresh flavours. I pan fried my patties due to lack of a grill and they got a lovely crispy coating in the process.

Leaving out the rice noodles and serving with the coriander & spring onion salad with sweet chilli sauce is totally delicious - Extremely easy & scrumptious
