    Literary Mom's Note:

    We made a delicious meal of these, Chinese eggrolls, Thai corn fritters, and nuoc cham dipping sauce. I found variations of this recipe on the web, but adjusted the amounts for the best flavor. These can also be grilled. UPDATE: I can't vouch for it being authentically Vietnamese, though the recipes I combined to make this were labeled that way. Also, I don't think fish sauce is a particularly Korean ingredient. I'd change the name to Asian Meatballs but that would mess up the URL.

      I made this with ground turkey and broiled them (without the skewers, I have bad luck with those!). Wow! Yummy. I served with an assortment of sauces (duck sauce, pineapple chili sauce, teriyaki, and hoisin), fried rice, and wonton soup. These were a hit!!

      These are quite tasty, but as a previous reviewer pointed out, they're not really Vietnamese, as pork is the common meat for such a dish in Vietnam. These are more similar to Korean-style meatballs. In fact, I even posted a recipe for Korean meatballs on this site a long while back that's similar to this one (though it also included a dipping sauce).

      Hmm, I have never come across nem (meatballs) made from beef growing up as a Vietnamese American in the largest expat Vietnamese community worldwide (five cities in "The O.C." in southern Cali), or when I spent over half a year traveling throughout Vietnam recently either. As far as I know, meat nem is traditionally only made from pork. The closest thing we have to a beef nem would be Bò Lá Lót, where beef is wrapped in betel leaves and grilled. :)
