Servings 20
  • 400 grams ground pork
  • 300 grams ground beef (*or more pork!)
  • 100 grams red onion (1 red onion)
  • 225 grams can of crushed pineapple with juice
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon chinese five spice
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chilli powder
  • 60 grams sesame seeds
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.

  2. First chop up the onion to a fine dice. Roughly chop the garlic. Throw everything except the sesame seeds into a food processor and whizz ’round until well mixed. You can also do this by hand, which is probably advisable, it’s just that my dicing skills leave a lot to be desired.

  3. Roll the mix into meatballs and roll them into the sesame seeds to coat. Makes about 18-20 large meatballs.

  4. Stick on a tray (lined with baking paper to make clean up a breeze) and bake for about 45 minutes.

  5. Tastier when cool!
