Sorry for the lack of dialogue. It’s 2:45 am, I’m feeling guilty for not posting a lot, and I’m tired from work and school. I also have my 8 am gym workout to look forward too. Ugh.

At least I have meatballs that cheer me up. 🙂

Sesame Meatballs

½ pound ground pork

½ pound ground beef

½ cup panko

1 egg

1 teaspoon dried or 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

½ teaspoon black pepper

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup sesame seeds

½ teaspoon dried parsley

1-2 tablespoons canola oil

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 small onion, chopped in small pieces

1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2 inch long strips

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon white sugar

3 tablespoons rice wine

1/2 teaspoon cornstarch


  • Combine pork, beef, panko, egg, parsley, black pepper and salt in a bowl. Form into 1 ½ inch wide balls. Spread sesame seeds and parsley on a plate. Roll the balls over them, coating each meatball with sesame seeds.
  • Fry meatballs in canola oil over medium heat until cooked. Remove from pan.
  • In the same pan, saute garlic until fragrant, around 30 seconds. Add onions and saute for 1 minute. Add red bell peppers and stir fry until it is half cooked.
  • Mix soy sauce, white sugar and rice wine in a cup. Make sure the sugar is fully dissolved. Add cornstarch and stir.
  • Add the meatballs into the pan over the red bell peppers. Pour sauce over the meatballs. Lower heat to the lowest point, cover the pan, and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Serve over hot steamed rice.
