    loof's Note:

    I love the smell of lemongrass so that makes preparing these spicy meatballs almost as enjoyable as eating them! From "The Meatball Cookbook Bible"....according to the author, if you can't find fresh lemongrass you can substitute 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice plus a pinch of powdered ginger for each stalk of lemongrass specified.

      This made a great early dinner for us. It was fun trying new stuff like lemongrass and fish sauce. Made for ZWT9 Hot Stuff.
