  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Place lemon grass, onion, and garlic in the container of an electric blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until finely chopped, about 10 seconds. Scrape lemon grass mixture into a bowl, and stir in beef, salt, pepper, sugar, cornstarch, oyster sauce, and sesame oil.
  3. Form meat mixture into 12 meatballs. Thread onto skewers.
  4. Cook on the preheated grill until the meatballs are well done, about 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

These were pretty tasty! They are great for a nice party appetizer or to enjoy just by yourself (like for me tonight). I topped them with a little extra oyster sauce which gave the right amount ...
