I made half recipe, made the meatballs bigger and did not use the red pepper (can't eat). I did find the cook time at our altitude made them a wee bit dry, but will change that next time. We enjoyed these over rice with Asian beans. Thanks for sharing Bea! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

As I made these meatballs I had to wonder why over the years our ground pork was basically used for homemade sausage, cabbage rolls/lazy cabbage roll casseroles! Made half a recipe using freshly ground pork, loved these meatballs. Next time around will be making the full recipe ... looking forward to serving to family and friends! As I see it a great weekend meal!
