Gluten Free Asian Meatballs

Gluten Free Asian Meatballs

These a fusion dish dreamed up last night when we fancied something slightly oriental but didn’t have a vast array of ingredients to make a dish.

I used beef mince in this instance but pork would work equally well and is more in keeping for the dish.


I served these bite sized savoury morsels on top of Thai Jasmine Rice Mushrooms and Spring Onions sauteed in soy sauce and mirin (or sherry) and Steamed Broccoli as a side.
