PREP TIME

15 minutes

COOK TIME

20 minutes

SERVES

4

Ingredients

1 tbsp vegetable oil

4 long crusty bread rolls

pork pate to serve (optional)

slices pork luncheon to serve (optional)

Kewpie mayonnaise* to serve

Coconut Sriracha (find out where to buy here) to serve

Coriander leaves to serve

 

Quick-pickle carrots:

1 carrot, cut into matchsticks

1 long red chilli, sliced

¼ cup rice vinegar

¼ cup sugar

 

Meatballs:

500g (1 lb) pork mince

1 lemongrass stalk, pale part only, bruised and finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, finely grated

4 spring onions, white and green parts finely chopped

1 tbsp fish sauce

2 tbsp (or to taste) Coconut Sriracha

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp sea salt

Steps

For the quick-pickle carrots, combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Any extra can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

To make the pork balls, combine the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix vigorously. Shape into walnut-sized meatballs.

Heat oil in large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook meatballs (in batches if necessary), turning, for 5 minutes or until evenly browned and cooked through.

Split bread rolls lengthwise, without cutting all the way through. Generously spread with pate. Top with slices of luncheon, meatballs, pickled carrot, drizzle with mayonnaise, Coconut Sriracha and coriander.
