Wow! I wasn't expecting them to live up to the 5-star rating, but they do! Wonderful flavors. While the recipe doesn't make a large quantity of sauce, all the flavors are potent, so a little bit is just right.<br/><br/>I served these at an office potluck, where they were a hit. I only made a couple small tweaks, based on some food science from America's Test Kitchen: I added milk, breadcrumbs (panko) and a little gelatin to help keep the meat moist and tender. (I now do this for all meatballs.) I also added one egg in a double recipe. Then, I baked them on a wire rack in a 450 degree rather than frying. Again, this is my "standard" for meatballs.<br/><br/>Since I was serving from a crockpot, I used half of the sauce as a glaze, and reserved the other half for dipping.

Oh my goodness! I made these tonight and they are gorgeous! I didn't make the dipping sauce this time as I served them with homemade pork fried rice. Next time I make these I will make them with the dipping sauce. I love these tasty balls and I never would have though to make them myself!

FANTASTIC!!! Sooooo delicious! I found the recipe last night and sent the hubby out today to get what I was missing. The prep time was long-ish (pretty accurate though) but so worth every minute. I didn't change a thing except cook them in the oven for 20 minutes at 425 instead of fry them. I have 2 toddlers so frying wasn't realistic for me but I'm positive it didn't change a thing. Also made the dipping sauce which was yummy but if I don't have time to make it every time, I will still make the meatballs on their own. Next time, and there will definitely be a next time, I'll triple the batch cos there are none left! Thanks for the fab recipe.

This was really good, both the meatballs and the dipping sauce. I used ground turkey but didn?t change anything else.

DELICIOUS! WHAT A WINNER!
I only made the meatballs - didn't take that long - and they were great! I used beef since I didn't have pork on hand, and used shredded lime rind since I had no lemon grass. If you can't find fish sauce, soy sauce will do fine too. I had green onions I cut fine also. So incredibly good! Any type of ground meat will do - I even think all the meatball ingredients put together will make a great marinade over large shrimp or chicken breasts.
I served the meatballs with coconut rice (use coconut milk instead of water) and some veggies and salad.
Never even made the dressing, but they were so tasty I never missed it.

These meatballs taste great! I made these for my husband and we just loved them. I have since made the dish for 3 of my girlfriends who thought I had ordered in. The preparation time is long. Took me almost an hour to do the prep first time. I didn't include the chili in the dipping sauce but I did add extra lime juice as I am a big fan. The dipping sauce gives this dish a real wow. I served it with a fresh stir fry and shrimp rolls from the supermarket.
