This is a Chinese homestyle Pork Meatballs Recipe. It has taken me a couple of tries, but this recipe is exactly what I wanted.
A little background on what I was trying to create. My father-in-law used to make this amazing dish for Christmas dinner before he became ill. I have no idea what it was called, but I’ll try to explain it as best as I can.
Imagine a large claypot, with a layer of cabbage, then these amazing egg crepes filled with a five spice pork meatball. They were small, about the size of a teaspoon. From the way I understand it, he would heat up a large spoon and use that to create the egg crepe, then put in the small meatball, wrap it in the egg crepe and put it on top of the cabbage. Then covered and baked and wow.
I never actually learned this recipe from him, and I wish I had. These meatballs have the taste of the filling in that dish. I haven’t actually tried to recreate the egg crepe wrapper. One of these days I will attempt it. At least now I have the filling mastered.
