    Submitted by TrixieS on 6. June 2018 - 15:04.

    Omg! I’ve had this on my to do list for years! Finally. Wish I had made it before. It is divine. I used a lemon and pepper chicken breast as well as a regular one. Also didn’t use quite as much fish sauce in the balls because people said they could be sloppy. Then accidentally used 1tbsp in the broth. It was a bit salty but still so scrumptious. I don’t usually like Bok Choy but loved it in this. Thank you.

    Submitted by Bubblesmix on 24. April 2018 - 12:55.

    Made this last night. I used two large chicken breasts as my hubby likes lots of meat and the recipe had to feed 4 of us. It made a LOT of meatballs so I halved the mix and added chillies to hubby's half. Also added breadcrumbs as suggested and cooked them in the both varoma trays. The meatballs took ages to cook, and I regret cooking the broth longer as the noodles broke up a bit too much. Next time I'll cook the broth for the recommended time then swap it out with boiling water to continue cooking the meatballs. I will also seal the meatballs in a pan first, as we weren't a fan of the steamed texture.

    The broth flavours were amazing though - loved it.

    Also will make more of the broth next time, as there was just too many meatballs compared to broth haha.

    Submitted by Bradjenhicks on 14. March 2018 - 07:25.

    I made his last night and it was fantastic. I’ve been to Vietnam twice and the flavour was true to the flavours you’d expect there.
    I used 500ml of chick stock and then made up the water to the total amount (as I used the chicken stock from the BCB).
    i did my meatballs in the Varoma but had to extend the cooking time a fair amount to make sure they were cooked. Next time I’d at the Varoma at step 5 - if not earlier.
    But the extra time did not affect the soup at all.
    Hubby loves it also, definitely going to become a regular in the house.

    Really great broth but my chicken balls fell apart in the basket. I have been making this soup with store bought frozen wontons/dim sims which is almost as tasty if you make sure you add coriander ets to the broth.

    Absolutely delicious, thanks for posting this recipe. I steamed the chicken balls in the varoma while the soup cooked. I found the mixture very soft so thought it would stick together in the basket. I didnt have any star anise so added a sprinkle of Chinese five spice, gave great flavour. I also added a small amount of shredded Chinese cabbage and some julienned carrot instead of Pak choy. My husband went back for seconds and said it was worth waiting for, late dinner tonight! Smile

  • WOW!  I can't believe this

    Submitted by Tiny on 17. October 2016 - 10:41.

    WOW!  I can't believe this came out of my kitchen.  I too doubled the recipe and cooked the (maybe 20 or so smallish) chook balls in the soup in a saucepan on stove top.  it was so delicious we had to have seconds.

    I too added chilli, garlic and fresh ginger to balls, as well as soup.

    I also used silverbeet instead of pak choy as we have a heap in the veggie patch and sprinkled chopped silver beet on top along with bean sprouts, chilli and coriander.  Looked and tasted like the real deal.

    NOTE to self; or anyone else interested.

    Chop garlic, chilli, ginger for balls first, before adding chook, coriander and spring onion.  Prep balls day before for flavour enhancement?

    Read noodle preparation and get onto that while prepping soup.

    Use gloves when rolling balls.  Despite sloppiness of balls, they hold together well, very tender and delicious.

    i used 270g chicken to make the chicken balls. Which made 7 large balls. 

    2 x star anise & 1 medium chilli in soup.

    using fresh ginger than the powered stuff gives it better flavour.

    will be making this dish All the time.

    Also why does it have the varoma in the picture above as what you need to cook.  This wasn't in the instructions?

    I made this tonight with about 400 g of chicken and extended the cooking time by only a few minutes... I found that I had to increase the speed up to 3 to ensure all the meatballs were immersed in the broth to cook them and I did turn them over for the last 4 minutes as per the recipe.

    Made this today, it was lovely, but the broth possibly could have done with a little more seasoning. I found my meatballs also stuck together in the steamer basket, so next time I'd probably do them in the varoma.

    Submitted by Vablo81 on 18. May 2016 - 21:42.

    Sooooo good! Hubby gave it 10/10. I used half a bunch of corriander because a bunch seemed too much. Even then it was way too much so I upped the checken  another 100gms to try and counteract the amount of corriander. Becuase of this I had more meatballs that took a longer to cook ( I  did Step 6 for 8 minutes). Also only used 1 tspn stock concentrate as per other suggestions.

    But flavour was insane! Loved it.
