BANH MI MEATBALLS

INGREDIENTS:
  1. 24 oz. mini or regular size pork meatballs, frozen (beef meatballs would also work well)
  2. 1/2 c. sweet chili sauce, purchased or homemade
  3. 1/4 c. low-sodium teriyaki sauce
  4. 1 T. fish sauce
  5. 1 c. shredded carrot
  6. 1/4 c. chopped cilantro
  7. 1/4 c. thinly sliced jalapeño

OPTIONAL CONDIMENTS:
  1. 1/4 c. chopped mint
  2. pickled red onions
  3. lime wedges, for squeezing fresh juice over the top right before eating

DIRECTIONS:
  • Heat 12″ cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, turning every minute or so.
  • In a small bowl, combine sweet chili sauce, teriyaki sauce, and fish sauce. Pour sauce into skillet and toss meatballs to coat. Cover skillet and let meatballs cook for about 10 minutes, until thoroughly warmed and meatballs reach 165° F, stirring every few minutes. If you want to thicken the sauce a bit, uncover skillet and turn up heat to medium-high. Stir regularly until sauce is thickened to your liking.
