These sticky little morsels are delicious when dipped in the fragrant crushed nuts and chilli.

You could make them with chicken if you wish.

  • 400g fine pork mince
  • 200g sausage meat
  • 1 tsp garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • ¼ cup satay sauce
  • ½ cup peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp mint or coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • ¼ small red onion, very finely diced

1 In a large bowl, combine mince, sausage meat, garlic, ginger, spice powder and peanut butter. Mix well and leave to marinate for 2-3 hours or longer if you can. Roll into balls and chill until cooking.

2 Heat oil in a large pan and cook meatballs for 8-10 minutes until brown all over, add satay sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes until sticky and caramelised.

3 Combine peanuts, mint, chilli and red onion and mix well. Serve sticky pork balls on a platter with the nuts for dipping.
