Wowsas. I don't ever take time to review recipes, but I had to for these meatballs. I actually "changed it up" and made burgers out of these rather than meatballs. It works fantastically. These burgers are amazingly delicious. I've made them about 4 times since it was published in EW magazine, and since I'm single, I've eaten them for leftovers for at least a week after and NEVER grow tired of them! I highly suggest that you get on making these stat! You won't be disappointed!

fresh, clean ingredients, PACKED with flavor
Leftover Luxury!

What's that you say? You doubled the recipe so there were leftovers for lunch the next day?

Oh yes! Skip the bread and just build a salad out of the slaw, cuccumbers, cilantro, quartered meatballs, and spicy mayo for dressing! You tastebuds will be doing the happy dance at lunchtime!

Amazingly flavorful!

I made this recipe for friends who don't usually each Vietnamese food and they loved it so much they were asking where to get the ingredients. The sandwiches are simple to make and have tons of flavor. I used all chicken because I don't eat pork, and the meatballs were still juicy and delicious. Amazing!!!

Great flavor, easy to make, full of yummy vegetables and healthy protein.
