Thai Pork Meatballs

Thai Pork Meatballs

This is a tasty weekend dinner that all the family will enjoy. Pork is a good source of vitamins B12 and B6 which can help calm and maintain a healthy nervous system.

Thai Pork Meatballs (Serves Four)


500 g lean pork mince

1 tablespoon tomato ketchup or tomato puree

1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce

2 teaspoons oyster sauce

1 teaspoon ground coriander or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander

1 tablespoon fresh or bottled lime juice


Mix together in a bowl. Cover a baking tray with slightly raised sides with tin foil. Shape the mince into 8 evenly sized balls and then squash slightly with your hand to make a patty shape. Put them in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Check that they are browned and cooked through before serving. You may need to drain off some oil and juices from the tray when you take them out of the oven. Just be careful of the liquid whilst you do so.

Serve with salad or fresh, raw spinach in poppy seed flatbread.

  • I tried these (I added also some spring onions and ginger, as they had to be used asap), and served them with sticky rice… they were awesome and my flatmate loved them as well! Next time I’ll try to stick to the recipe and try them with spinach and poppyseed bread (I find the little one from Tesco is actually quite nice!). Thank you for sharing! ♡

    • Thanks ever so much for letting me know how the recipe went Felicia! I’m so glad you and your flatmate enjoyed them, and sticky rice sounds a lovely accompaniment. I think spring onion and ginger sounds a fabulous addition too, I will give that a try!
