This was good although i changed a bit based on my pantry. I used fresh tomatoes and added some tomato sauce. I also used dried herbs and added fresh zucchini

I really, really like this very much! This recipe is another outstanding taste sensation and surprisingly pretty quick to make. The idea of precooking the half meat in water along with onion, garlic, and ginger is interesting and not sure why meat is added here (maybe the texture). Then you add everything except the sauce ingredients in the blender (I used food processor) to get it pasty to form into walnut sized meatballs. For those without a blender or food processor, you can still get close to the texture by using hands and mixing for about 10 minutes vigorously. This is the same technique used in Japan to get the pastiness coming from meat for making Japanese style hamburgers and other meat dumplings such as gyoza. The sauce ingredient is fabulous. I did not have almonds and subbed walnuts. I think the addition of almonds is mostly for the texture and other nuts should work such as walnuts and pecans. Instead of serving this recipe with rice, I'm serving with homemade French bread and green salad. Thank you Brian H for another A+++++! Will be making this one often for sure.

This was great, and in fact, took less time than I anticipated, although I did take the extra time to let the sauce cook and the flavours develop. I used a 410 gr can of peeled tomatoes, and I did omit the chili from the meatballs so that my daughters would eat it, but otherwise, just as directed. i found it simple to prepare, flavoursome and fragrant. The meatballs were firm and I can see how you could simply prepare them without the sauce, and serve them as an appetizer, with a dip. Overall, really enjoyed, Brian, thank you!!!!
