There’s many variations for meat ball, it all depends on which part of the world you are living in. They range from east to west, from countries to families. All types of meats are being used, be it beef, pork or chicken. Then additional  ingredients is added into the basic meat mixture, and even the cooking method is extensive. The meat balls can be deep fried, steamed of even broiled in soup. I think every families has their very own recipe for their meat balls.

And  i always had fun cooking meat balls dishes. How they turn out depends on the mood i’m in when i’m preparing it. It’s always a nice challenge when you experiment with new ingredients and the feeling of  achievement is great when it’s well received by others.

This is most basic meat ball recipe i’ve cooked, and there definitely will be more posted in the future. Enjoy!
