Ginger Meatballs Recipe

Meet my second dish in the Simply Asia Summer Recipe Challenge: Ginger Meatballs! I was asked to create three dishes- an entree, appetizer and side dish. These Ginger Meatballs are my appetizer recipe submission. I made Spicy Shrimp & Vegetable Stir Fry as my entree.

I have to warn you that these meatballs are addicting! I couldn’t stop at just one. If I was making them for a party, I’d have to make extra because they are so yummy!

In this recipe, I use fresh ginger, but you could use ground if fresh ginger isn’t available where you live.
