I wanted to keep it lower carb, but what I really wanted, actually was craving like you wouldn't believe, was potstickers. So me being me, I went about to recreate the "inside" of the potstickers to serve along with our egg drop soup I was making for dinner.
I am here to tell you my friends, my experiment was a total success, and to be honest with you, served on a toothpick next to your favorite Asian soup? These were just perfection!
You can certainly have them as a meal as we did, but these will be perfect for appetizers as well. I certainly plan on making them again, that is for sure!
Ready for the recipe? Here we go;
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 30-35 minutes
Yield: 22-24 meatballs
1-1/2lbs ground pork
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Chinese Five Spice Blend - this is my ultimate favorite
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
3 tbsp Hoison sauce - also my favorite
2 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup green onions, sliced
1 cup hot water to dip your hands in
-In a medium mixing bowl, add all your ingredients and mix well.
-Preheat oven to 350F. Using a baking sheet, add a piece of aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
-Using your cookie scoop, scoop out the mixture and place directly on baking sheet.
-Dipping your hands in hot water - this will ensure nothing sticks on your hands, shape into meatballs.
-Bake for 35 minutes.
Enjoy on a toothpick next to your favorite Asian soup or as an appetizer. I think these will be fantastic in a pho to be honest!
Either way, you will never miss the wrappers. It's the stuffing that counts right?
Till next time!
