Asian Meatball Recipe

asian meatballs

My fascination with foreign food continues tonight as I whip up some Asian meatballs. I found this on Recipezaar a few months back and knew I had to try it, but there was just one little problem, I couldn’t find rice stix anywhere.

At the time I didn’t even know what they were nor did anyone at any grocery store where I looked. Finally last week I stumbled across the Asian section at Wal-Mart and right in front of my eyes where they were, rice stix!

I quickly grabbed two bags and at last, it was time for me to try this recipe for Asian Meatballs. Now normally I only post recipes on here that I feel are the best of the best, but tonight I’m going to make an exception.

This was more of a test than anything and id say it had its up and downs. I thought the meatballs were excellent but I found the flavour of the noodles to be a little bland.

If I made this again I would definitely add some more of my favourite vegetables to the mix. We definitely had some mixed reviews. Hit or miss, you decide.

mareza - Thanks, sounds great. I find the rice stix rather interesting but like I said in this article, I found the noodles in this recipe to be rather bland. The beef broth sounded great in the recipe but it just didn't give it enough flavor for me. I look forward to your e-mail. I think I am going to try a recipe for Chinese spaghetti and meatballs here pretty soon.
