Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 lemongrass stalks, white part only
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 2-inch piece of ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 lb. ground pork, beef or chicken
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (sub coconut sugar or honey for paleo)
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (sub coco aminos for paleo)
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Instructions

  1. Place the lemongrass stalks, cilantro, onion, ginger, and garlic into your food processor and process on high until smooth and almost paste-like. Place the ground pork, beef, or chicken into a large bowl and pour in the lemongrass paste. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix together well. I find using my hands the easiest way to do this.
  2. Roll 20 meatballs and place them on a baking sheet. Place enough oil in a large frying pan to thinly cover the bottom. Heat the pan over medium-high heat until the oil is shimmering. Cook the meatballs, turning them a few times, until they are well browned and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
