Vietnamese Meatballs

DeAnna L. 1

"These meatballs have a Vietnamese flair and are quite tasty! They can be served as an appetizer with a dipping sauce, or served with rice as a meal. I like them on a bed of hot jasmine long grained rice that's been cooked in a rice cooker!"

I agree with other reviewers - this is way too wet. I have no idea how you'd put it on skewers. An ingredient was left out for binding (oatmeal, bread crumbs, etc) or the directions are incorr...

Good recipe, I added a couple extras: chopped green onion and bread crumbs, as it was very wet. I cooked the meatballs on cookie sheets and omitted the skewers. Served on rice, add peanut sauce ...

I love these meatballs! Ive made them a few times and serve them with a noodle and veggie stir fry. Easy, different and healthy.

No fish sauce, but that didn't hurt. Made them walnut sized and nuked them, then dipped in hot sauce. Also heated leftovers in chicken broth along with assorted veggies to make a complete meal...

Way too wet. Added bread crumbs and it just tasted like rubber.
