Chinese Meatballs

Meatballs are a mini version of a large meatloaf - a bite sized portion of a favorite comfort food.  This particular Chinese meatballs recipe combines an oriental flavoring with the ground beef for an unusual but very tasty meatball.  You can serve these meatballs alone by removing them from the broth after cooking or you can serve them as Chinese meatball soup by adding the scallions to the broth.

Chinese Meatballs Ingredients

• 1/2 pound ground beef
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon sugar
• 2 teaspoons cornstarch
• 1 teaspoon soy sauce
• 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
• 1 egg white
• 2 and 1/2 cups beef broth
• 2 and 1/2 cups water
• thin slice of fresh ginger
• 1/4 cup chopped scallions (green only)

Chinese Meatball Directions

In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, salt, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, sesame oil, and egg white.  Stir gently until well combined and soft.  Using clean hands, shape bite-sized meatballs out of the mixture.

In a medium stockpot, pour together beef broth and water.  Heat until near boiling.  Add ginger and gently add meatballs.

The Chinese meatballs are done when they float to the top of the beef broth. 

If you want to serve the meatballs alone, scoop them out of the broth once done.  If you want to serve Chinese meatball soup, add chopped scallions to the broth and meatballs and serve.
