Simple homemade meatballs using minced pork

My favorite way of making basic meatballs that I use in my soups and stews.

  • Minced pork
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Maggi cukup rasa
  • White/black pepper if you want
  • 1 whole egg
  • Cornstarch/ tapioca flour

Mix everything together, sear all sides on hot non-stick pan (no oil), add to soup/ stew and boil till fully cooked. I pretty much just “agak-agak” or eyeball the amount of seasoning I use. Generally each time I make it, it’s around 250g to 300g of minced pork. I add more cornstarch if it’s too sticky/slimy. At the end you should be able to use a spoon to ball it up and it should hold it’s shape.

Add all ingredients together
Mix till it’s not too slimy, not too dry.
Sear all sides till brown on a non-stick pan
Done. It’s still not fully cooked yet at this point, so I add it to soups/ stews to fully cook. Makes about 17-20 meatballs.
