4. Add the pork meat, green onions, carrots, kimchi, and * ingredients to a bowl and mix together by hand until it all sticks together.
5. Form into meatballs and cover with katakuriko (not listed). *This yields about 13-15 balls.
6. Bring the ◎ ingredients to a boil in a pan, add the meatballs from step 5, and cover with a lid. Flip them over once 3 minutes have passed. ※Reduce to low-medium heat after you add the meatballs to the pan.
7. Flip the meatballs over 2-3 times in the process, and simmer for about 15 minutes.
8. They are done. They taste great even when cold.
9. This is how they look without coating in katakuriko, they are delicious without as well.
