Ingredients
  • 1 slice white bread
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 pound ground lamb
  • 1/2 pound ground bison
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 serrano peppers, chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon plum vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mirin
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 jar sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup panko crumbs, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger
Directions
  • Soak the slice of bread in the milk in a small bowl.

  • Mix the ground meats, soaked bread, and all remaining ingredients, up to the olive oil, until well combined.

  • Roll the meat mixture into walnut-sized balls. In a large saute pan, over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil and sear the meatballs. If you can't fit them all in the pan at once, cook in batches. Sear into golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly.

  • In a small saucepan, heat the chili sauce over low heat.

  • Stick a toothpick or skewer into each meatball, then dip them into the sauce. Roll the tips in toasted panko and crystallized ginger and serve.
