Grandma’s Yummy Fried Pork Balls Recipe

  1. Mince mushroom, carrots, garlic and shallots with a food grinder/chopper. You can use a knife but it will take longer. Place aside.
  2. Place minced pork in a large deep container.
  3. Add soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper (plenty), salt and heaping teaspoons of cornflour.
  4. Mix by hand until combine.
  5. Add minced mushroom, shallots, garlic and carrots.
  6. Again, mix by hand until combine. While mixing, press your hand close (grip your hand) so that all the ingredients will bind together.
  7. Marinate for 2-3 hours in the fridge. Best if leave overnight.
  8. Mix and press again once you remove container from the fridge.
  9. Make a water and soy sauce mixture.
  10. Meanwhile heat just enough oil in the wok so that half the pork ball will be covered (not to waste oil). You can add oil to cover fully.
  11. While the oil is heating up, roll a pork ball of 3cm (or 4cm) in diameter. Dab pork ball with soy sauce. Then ‘slap’ pork ball from one palm to the other about 3-5 times.
  12. Fry until golden brown. Use a pair of chopsticks to easily turn the pork ball.
