Fried Meatballs (หมูก้อนทอด)

by - April 22, 2013

This is a Thai meatballs recipe with ground pork, fish sauce, oyster sauce, garlic and pepper. Fried meatball is a homey recipe, one that you can make it everyday without too much work--and this super easy recipe is great for both kids and adults. All you need to do is marinating the ground pork with fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, garlic and pepper, and let sit overnight then deep fry it. After marinating the saltiness from the oyster sauce will blend very well with the ground pork and the rest of ingredients giving the salty, garlicky, peppery deliciousness. 

I have been always  struggling taking good pictures of meatballs and this time is no exception.  I hope you still give this recipe a try and make it your go-to recipe when you are busy.  I promise they are tastier than they look.  Enjoy!
