Family Style Sesame Oil Ginger Meatballs

This is our family recipe since my Grandma's time.  A very simple pork recipe with only 2 main ingredients - shredded ginger and minced meat [even better if you minced your own].  A dish suitable for confinement ladies and all who loves the aroma of sesame oil and ginger.  In Penang, with the Ghee Hiang Sesame Oil, this dish is even more flavourful  together with good quality soy sauce.
300 gm minced meat [with some fats]
4-5 tbsp of finely shredded ginger
4-5 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce
3/4 cup water
1 tsp sugar to taste
  1. Heat sesame oil in wok to saute ginger until aromatic and slightly crispy.  Remove a little, set aside as garnishing.
  2. Add in light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar and water.  Bring it to a boil.  Taste to adjust seasoning.
  3. Form minced meat into a tablespoon size meatballs and drop them into boiling sauce.  Leave to cook for awhile before stirring [to avoid meatballs from breaking apart].
  4. Dish out cooked  meatballs and gravy onto a bowl.  Garnish with fried ginger.  Serves well with rice or porridge.

This is a good confinement dish, especially good for women.

We sometimes set aside some to make it into a soup with blanched flour vermicelli [mee suah] by adding enough water. You can also add in an egg and chopped chinese celery.
