    Chinese Meatballs with Hoisin Sauce Recipe

    2 lbs. ground pork butt
    2 T. finely minced garlic
    2 T. minced fresh ginger
    1/3 C. hoisin sauce
    1/3 C. soy sauce
    1/4 C. granulated sugar
    1/4 C. sweet rice wine (mirin)
    1/4 C. minced water chestnuts
    1/4 C. minced shrimp
    1 egg white
    Approximately 2 C. chicken stock or broth
    Lettuce leaves, hoisin sauce, chopped green onions and chopped peanuts, for garnish


    Combine pork, garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sugar, rice wine, water chestnuts, shrimp and egg white. Mix well, cover and refrigerate overnight.

    Form pork mixture into 24 small balls. Bring chicken stock just to a simmer in a large saucepan and add pork balls. Stock should just barely cover pork balls; add more stock during cooking if necessary. Pan should not be crowded; cook pork balls in two batches if necessary. Simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot.
