Spicy Leek Meatballs

Spicy Leek Meatballs

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


1 pound lean ground turkey or ground beef

1 1/2 cups minced leeks (white and light green part only, about one bunch)

2 fresh chili peppers, minced

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced

2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons sesame oil

salt and pepper to taste


1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Knead well by hand until the ingredients are thoroughly

combined, but do not over-mix.

2. Divide the mixture into 10-12 equal portions, about 1/4 cup each. Roll each portion into a ball.

3. Heat the cooking oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and pan-fry,

covered, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Drain

on a paper towel.


Serve over a bed of simple steamed greens.

Place meatballs into freezer to freeze and pop into a soup for a quick dinner option.
