Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound thin-cut bacon, minced
  • 1 pound ground pork butt
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 stalks lemongrass, cut into twelve 4-inch sticks
  • Sweet chili sauce, for dipping
Directions

Preheat the broiler. Lightly mix the bacon, ground pork, garlic, cilantro, ginger, sugar and soy sauce in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Dampen your hands. Form the meat into 12 balls. Thread a piece of lemongrass halfway through each ball; press the meat mixture down the stalk to form a sausage-like shape, leaving some of the stalk uncovered for the handle.

Put the pops on a foil-lined broiler pan and broil until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with sweet chili sauce.
