Monday Mixing: Thit Nuong Cha (Vietnamese Pork Meatballs)

This goes well on top of a salad dressed with nước chấm (a recipe for another time).
Source: I think it came from a vintage Vietnamese cookbook.
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • ½ small onion – finely chopped
  • ½ cup green onion – chopped
  • ½ teaspoon fish sauce
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sweetener
  1. Preheat oven to 300°
  2. Combine all ingredients, press into pan or roll into balls.
  3. Bake, uncovered for 30 Minutes.
TRILLIAN'S TIPS:  Fish sauce STINKS. Don't spill or get it on yourself. Especially if you have a cat. No matter how well you think you've cleaned your hands/wherever it spilled, the licking will never stop.
