How To Make Vietnamese-Style Meatballs with Chili Sauce
Each bite of these Vietnamese meatballs is packed with umami from the refreshing herbs! It is served alongside a spicy sauce for a more tasteful meal.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and set an oven rack in the middle position.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, scallions, lime zest, cilantro, and mint. Whisk to combine. Add the beef, pork, and panko.
Using your hands, mix until evenly combined. Roll the mixture into golf ball-sized balls and arrange on an unlined baking sheet.
Bake for 25 minutes, flipping once with a metal spatula halfway through the cooking time, until the meatballs are browned and cooked through.
Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Be sure the sugar is completely dissolved and not stuck to the bottom of the bowl. Taste and add more chili sauce if desired.
Serve the meatballs drizzled with the sauce and sprinkled with scallions, cilantro, mint, and peanuts. Enjoy!
