DIRECTIONS

  • Place the flour in a shallow dish.
  • Mix the beef with the salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Make small, 1-inch meatballs- you should get 32-40.
  • Toss in the flour, dusting off the excess.
  • Line a sheet pan with paper towels.
  • Heat up a wok or a large saute pan with the oil until hot.
  • Add the garlic and saute briefly, about a minute.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Add the meatballs a few at a time and cook, turning them, until browned all over and cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  • Do not crowd the pan.
  • Transfer to the sheet pan to drain.
  • If no oil remains in the pan, add 2 tsp.
  • and fry the red curry paste for about 2 minutes to release the flavor, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
  • Add the reserved garlic and the coconut milk, then stir in the peanut butter.
  • Cook and stir until the sauce smooths out, about 1 minute or 2.
  • Add the fish sauce and stir to combine.
  • Taste; adjust the seasonings with more fish sauce, curry paste and sugar, if desired- the sauce should not be very sweet.
  • Return the meatballs to the pan with the sauce and simmer over low heat for about 2 minutes to reheat.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the mint or basil.
