Big juicy meatballs

Big juicy meatballs

This big juicy meatball dish is one that my youngest daughter said it’s really delicious despite all the sweet corn and garden peas added to it. She always hates garden peas but I’m adamant in adding them to fried rice or any other dishes, much to her dislike……oooops. But well, she has no choice. She just has to eat what’s being served on the table because it’s good for her. Or she has to cook herself. And I know she won’t. That’s how mothers win….*big grin*

I had cooked this dish a few times recently when I had friends over for dinner. My friends liked it very much. You can even prepare these meatballs a day or 2 in advance. On the day you want it, just made some sauce, add the meatballs and heat up. Then serve immediately.

These meatballs are very easy to make. Just put everything into a cake mixer and beat until sticky. However if you think you need some arm exercise, just go ahead and beat it up with bare hands or a spatula. You can make whatever size you want. I love them big. They are almost the size of table tennis balls. But they do shrink a little after being steamed. There’s such a lovely feeling when you bite into each one….mmm……so tender, juicy and delicious.

500g minced meat
1C sweet corn
1C green peas (tender garden peas)
3T light soya sauce
1t ground pepper
1T sesame oil
2T wine
2 eggs
3T corn flour

Meatball paste

Put everything into a cake mixer and beat until thick and sticky. This is the quickest method.

Ready to steam

Scoop into balls onto an oiled tray. From the picture here, I got 21 meatballs. I just have to make sure they all fit into the tray so that I only steam once and not twice.

Steamed meatballs

Steamed meatballs

Steam over high heat for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat immediately. Pour out the liquid into a small pot. Add 2t of cornflour into 1/2C water. Mix and stir into the liquid. Bring to boil, stirring continuously until thickened. Add the meatballs. Mix well, dish up and serve immediately. Garnish with some chopped coriander leaves if you like. The liquid is already very tasty so you don’t need to add seasoning. However, if you find it too bland, you can add a little salt and pepper, or other seasonings of your choice. You can even enjoy them without the sauce. This dish goes very well with rice. Or you can add the meatballs to rice porridge like in Meatballs Rice Porridge.

It’s Friday again! I’m always very happy when Friday is here because I look much forward to the weekend. Hope you have a great weekend. It’s just so wonderful to see the sun so bright today. I must go out and enjoy myself under the sun. Soon winter will be over…..yippeeee.

Til then, see you in my next post!

Oooo!!!! Nice. I do prefer deep fried meat balls though.

Meatballs are my kids’ favourites too.. Normally I make them into balls and cook them in porridge style, adding in some salted eggs and dried scallops.. :)

Must be lovely with the sauce, and I like the idea of cooking it from the steamed liquid. Enjoy your weekend, Mary!

Oh I must bookmark this recipe. Not a huge meat fan myself, but L and K seems to like meatballs. I love that you added corn and peas too. They like those veggies. I’ll bet these would go well in baguettes for lunch also. Looks very yummy. Will let you know if/when I have the time to make them. Or if I remember. Lol. Have a super weekend. Hope you get to play with your rocket toy. ;)

The meatballs must be very tasty swimming in that delicious gravy!

I like your style. I used to add veggies to my dishes too. Once they were in the dish, the kids either had to pick them out, or eat them. Most often they chose to eat them. Wonderful meatballs. :)

Somehow meatballs always remind me of the famous furniture mall Ikea. Hahaha! I’m sure your meatballs are a hit, dear. I love meatballs especially with porridge!
