Ginger Pork Meatballs w/ Veggie Noodles

I love to use all different kinds of ground meat to make meatball dishes. This one has a Thai inspired flavor profile. It brings in lots of ginger and jalapeno spiciness without overwhelming. And the veggie-packed noodles will make sure your family is getting their daily count. Try Ginger Pork Meatballs w/ Veggie Noodles for dinner tonight!

This recipe does have a sort of long list of ingredients, but trust me it’s all worth it. If you want to save some time – or if you don’t have some of the ingredients for the sauce – you can also just use your favorite Sesame Ginger Dressing. You will use basically a whole bottle (split in half for the meatballs and noodles). You can also use this sauce for lots of other things – it makes a great dipping sauce for wontons, eggrolls, and spring rolls.

You could also add more or different veggies to the noodles. I like to use veggies that don’t need to be cooked to be tasty – they give the dish a great crunch. Just be sure to cut them into thin matchstick-sized pieces so that they don’t overpower the noodles (making it almost a salad). Some other veggies I would suggest are red or green cabbage, bean sprouts, cucumbers, radishes or diakon.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
