Beef Meatballs

This is a quickie. Buy good hamburger and do something special in almost no time at all. I love these meatballs.

Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozLean ground beef
1 tablespoon 15mlDark soy sauce
1 tablespoon 15mlChinese rice wine or dry sherry
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlFreshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon 5mlSugar
2   Green onions - chopped
1   Egg - beaten
1 tablespoon 15mlCornstarch
1 teaspoon 5mlSesame oil
2   Garlic cloves - crushed
1 teaspoon 5mlSoybean condiment - (mein see), see * note
2 teaspoons 10mlFinely grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlMsg - optional
1   Spinach or mustard greens - for garnish

Recipe Instructions

* Note: Can be found in Asian and Oriental markets.

Mix all ingredients together with the exception of the garnish. You need to whip this dish to make it smooth, so I suggest a good electric mixer. Otherwise, do it by hand and beat the blazes out of this stuff.

Roll into small meatballs about 1 1/4-inches in diameter. Press some of the greens into a steaming bowl and top with the meatballs.

Steam the meatballs in several dishes, steaming each, or all together, for that matter, for about 15 minutes. It is best to use your bamboo steaming racks for these dishes. This recipe makes about 20 dim sum.

Hint: To keep meatballs from sticking to your hands, simply moisten your hands in between each molding of a meatball.
