No doubt these meatballs would be better with ground pork, but in the interest of using what you got, and being cost-efficient, these Thai Turkey Meatballs were born of necessity! They were still delish, and the turkey has such a mild flavor it really lets the bold thai flavors shine.
1 package ground turkey (mine was about 20 oz)
2 tbsp gluten free soy sauce
2 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
about an inch of ginger, minced
2 tbsp sweet chili sauce (optional)
1 tbsp garlic chili paste
additional soy and fish sauces
In a large mixing bowl, combine your ground meat and other ingredients, form into balls and brown in a dutch oven over high heat with a bit of oil, you'll want to brown both sides. When all meatballs have been browned, turn the heat down to medium and pour a bit more soy and fish sauce in with some chili garlic sauce and sweet chili sauce, mix well, and cover for 20 minutes to finish cooking. Serve with a simple salad and you're done! Easy peasy.
