Tip

These are so juicy and tasty.  Ths Sambal Olek on the dipping sauce is really only for colour. If you prefer a hot sauce, increase amount of Sambal Olek.

 

You can use chicken mince in lieu of Pork mince.

  • Delicious! Great for party

    Delicious! Great for party nibbles, but even better added into an Asian style salad. These always go down well.

    So yummy!! I've taken this as nibbles to a few parties now & they always go down a treat. If there's any leftover, it gets turned into a salad with the dipping sauce as a dressing. Very tasty.

    Sensational - I steamed some as per the recipe but also wrapped in wonton pastry & steamed these too. They were delicious both ways.

  • Could you clarify your

    Submitted by davmeljj on 21. August 2014 - 10:23.

    Could you clarify your comment - do you first have to preheat the water in the thermomix before adding the porkballs in the Varoma or whether you mean the total time for both preheating the water and cooking is 15minutes.

  • I minced my own chicken

    Submitted by 252bella on 23. March 2014 - 15:45.

    I minced my own chicken breast for these - this made for a wetter mixture and I was unable to roll into balls, instead I just dolloped straight onto veroma tray. As described, they are very moist and tasty and I love the idea of them being steamed. I served mine with Sweet Chilli Sauce - Devine...

    Thank you PrincessSteph

    I'm certain that I included that! 

     

    15 minutes as the water should be pre-heated. They ARE delicious and moist.

  • Sounds delicious, how long

    Submitted by guest on 3. February 2014 - 07:29.

    Sounds delicious, how long would you need to steam the meatballs for before you would say they were cooked? 10 mins?? 30 mins??
