Recipe: Homemade Meatballs

I always thought preparing homemade meatballs belong to the league of experienced home cooks. But as it turned out, it’s a simple dish! A healthier choice as compared to processed meatballs. You can either eat them with rice or add them to porridge.

Prepare and Marinate the Meatballs

  • Marinate the minced meat (pork or beef) with sesame oil.
  • For healthier choice: Add small bits of broccoli or chopped vegetables into the minced meat.
  • Optional: Add pepper and salt into the marinade for seasoning.
  • Roll the minced meat into small meatballs with your hands. You can scoop the portion out with a spoon.
  • Let the marinated meatballs sit for about 30 mins.


Meatballs with rice:

  • Cook the rice separately.
  • Steam the meatballs for 5 to 10 minutes until they’re cooked through.

Meatball porridge:

  • Prepare the porridge with vegetable/chicken stock and extra ginger.
  • Optional: Add pepper, sesame oil and salt for seasoning.
  • Add in the marinated meatballs to boil together with porridge.
  • Optional: Add spring onion for garnishing. And crack an egg just as the porridge is done.

Enjoy the juicy meatballs!
