Asian Meatballs Over Peanut Fried Rice

14 - Asian Meatballs Over Peanut Fried Rice
When I saw this recipe last week over on Vanilla Sugar I was really intrigued by it. The idea of meatballs in Asian cooking got me first. Then the mixture of different sauces like black bean & pad thai seemed really interesting as well. I changed very little in the recipe except I left out the water chestnuts & bamboo shoots, substituting carrot for the crunch instead.

This dish was a nice change from the typical stir-fries we tend to make. The meatballs have a great texture & flavor (the ginger flavor is quite strong). the sauces blend together quite well. I really liked the peanut fried rice with the mixture of pad thai & soy sauce, I'd make it again even without the meatballs.

We made all the meatballs (we got 2 dozen) and froze half of them to use later & then made half of the peanut fried rice. This was a good-sized dinner for two. Visit Vanilla Sugar to try this recipe out for yourself.

glad you liked it. a lot of my dinner dishes are full of spice and/or heat. we didn't have much leftovers, any that we did we ate cold the next day wrapped in lettuce wraps. very good. in that recipe you sent me for the pot pie--it said 24 peppercorns, is this right?

Peanut Fried Rice sounds so good! I've added Pine Nuts and Pecans to fried rice but not peanuts! Have to try it next time!
