I'm pretty happy about these: Asian Meatballs!

I whipped this up the other night and wanted to share...

Raven's Low Carb Asian Meatballs

Makes about 30 or so meatballs, at a trace carb each.

Ingredients


2 lbs Ground Turkey or Pork or one pound of each
1 ˝ cup crushed spicy pork rinds
1 tablespoon Chinese Five Spice Powder
2 tablespoons Dark Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Fish Sauce (optional)
2 tablespoons Sesame oil
˝ teaspoon Splenda
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 or 3 stalks green onion, finely minced
˝ cup Shitake mushrooms, stems removed-- soaked, dried, minced finely.

Mix all ingredients well, place into baggie and refrigerate overnite.
Form into small 1 inch diameter balls.

When ready to cook, you have three options:

Fry them in batches a skillet with a little peanut oil, about 20-30 minutes till done. If you roll them in sesame seeds or crushed pork rinds, they have a nice crunchy texture. Serve with a dip, like a low carb Teriyaki sauce.

Drop them into hot Asian-style flavored soup or even egg drop soup, cook 15-20 min and serve.

Bake them at 350 degrees in oven for about 30 minutes to 45 minutes. (good when you're multi-tasking.)

These are WAY YUMMMY. Good snack food, works as a main dish. You could also serve these with Shirataki noodles and a low carb peanut sauce. I served these with Faux-Fried Rice and Low Carb Egg Foo Yung.

Yum, yeah, I like the sound of this one! Thanks!

I'm thinking good on the shiratake noodles with a peanut sauce and a little minced fresh cilantro and slivered green onions on top....

I did a beef bouillon soup with a little fish sauce, broccoli and water chestnuts.

So, yeah-- any Asian soup should work.

Hi Erica,

In your recipe - you say spicy pork rinds. I have some BBQ flavor but they are not the best. What brand and flavor did you use? Also, if I use the plain what flavrings should I add to them, or shoukld I not even bother w/the plain?

I really wanna make this - it sounds right up my alley. Thinking I'll use both pork and turkey.

Those sound great!

I bet a little fresh, minced ginger would be good in them as well.

I get a brand (I think they're from the South)-- and it says "Red Hot", on the package. If you can't find those-- try adding Cayenne pepper, Hot Chili powder to taste.

Raven , I'm about to make these and I see I DIDN'T GET RICE WINE....GRRRRRR. I'm gonna make them anyway cuz I'm way too tired to head out again.......I see that you leave them overnight before you cook them the next day....SO, do you think I should buy the rice wine tomorrow?........Is it gonna make that much of a difference? Also, I HAD bought the spicy pork rinds but ate them last night and gained 3 lbs. overnight.........so I trashed the other bag I bought. I plain to use plain and add a little hot chili oil. Gonna try making a chicken stock based soup - bought bok choy too.

Thanks for the recipe!. FYI: I've been using Jicama in place of water chestnuts in my asian dishes -- less carbs, picks up the sauce flavor just fine and retains the cruuunch
