Japanese-Style Fried Meatballs

DINING WITH THE CHEF: Japanese-Style Fried Meatballs


In this episode, we’ll be making Japanese-style fried meatballs. Rika’s mother taught her this unique recipe, where instead of stewing them, the meatballs are fried. By pre-heating onions in the microwave, their flavor can be integrated into the meat more easily. To add seasoning, we’ll be using soy sauce, ginger, and nutmeg, to give the flavor plenty of complexity. We’ll also be focusing on side dish soups made with ginger, and showing a simple recipe for one of the many different Japanese dishes made with ginger.
