Bean Sprouts Meatballs in Chinese An Sauce

Bean Sprouts Meatballs in Chinese An Sauce

A hearty meatball with plenty of bean sprouts. Using my family's All-Purpose Sweet and Spicy Sauce makes preparations for this Chinese an sauce simple.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

●Ground pork
300 g
●Bean sprouts
1 bag
●Salt and pepper
a small amount
Bok choy (other greens are also OK)
1/2 bunch
Vegetable oil
as needed
All-Purpose Sweet and Spicy Sauce (Recipe ID: 701600)- the ingredients marked with a ★ are for this sauce
★Sugar, soy sauce, mirin, sake
2 tablespoons of each
1/4 teaspoon (or to taste)
200 ml
□Oyster sauce
1 scant tablespoon
1 scant tablespoon
□Tubed garlic
2 cm
1.5 tablespoons
□ Chinese soup stock
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
to taste


1. Wash the bean sprouts. I recommend just washing them Recipe ID: 709627.
2. Wash and cut up the bok choy, and cook in an oiled frying pan. Once the oil's been spread around, add hot water and boil for 20-30 seconds. Drain and set aside.
3. Put the ● ingredients in a bowl and use your hands to mix until it becomes sticky!
4. Make into round shapes of your desired size and cook in the frying pan. While you're doing this combine the ★ and □ ingredients and set aside.
5. Once they've browned, turn them over to cook both sides. They don't have to be cooked through!
6. Once both sides have browned, add the □ ingredients and bring to a boil. It's good to go if the meatballs have cooked through.
7. Place the bok choy on a plate and the meatballs on top and it's complete. Add a soft poached egg on top if you prefer.
