These Asian inspired meatballs are packed with aromatic herbs and spices and a hint of zesty lime.

The meatballs are perfect served with a side of zucchini noodles or a portion of cauliflower rice.

    I just made this recipe this evening and it came out very well. The taste is reminiscent of beefs balls you would order at dim sum but without the soft-spongy texture. I’d love to recreate the dim sum texture but I would make this again regardless. Very good!

      Says yield is 4 servings = 18 meatballs. So 1 serving is 4.5 meatballs?

        Thanks for catching! I have amended and updated this to 20 meatballs - 5 per person, so they will divide evenly!
