A post D&D treat for the DM and players! Serves 3-4 hungry orcs.
For the meatballs:
500g pork mince
2 spring onions finely chopped
1 small red chilli finely chopped
1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 clove garlic minced
For the broth:
1/2 small onion finely diced
1 clove garlic
200g sliced shittake mushrooms
1/2 yellow pepper
Small bunch of coriander chopped
1 green chilli finely chopped
1 can coconut milk
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 lime leaves
Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs and form into balls about the size of a large walnut. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 1/2 and hour.
Fry the onion and the garlic in a little oil in a saucepan. Add the chilli, pepper, mushrooms, lime leaves and courgette and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the coconut milk and a little extra water. Bring to the boil then lower to a simmer.
Heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the meatballs for 15-20 minutes depending on the size, turning wen they have taken a good colour.
Add the coriander and lime juice to the broth a few minutes before serving.
Serve the broth over rice or noodles and place the meatballs on top.
