Many people asked me what kind of food I feed our son. Thankfully, our son Bryson eats well. He seems to like both Korean and American food. Today, I will share one recipe that my son loves: Korean style baby meatballs. They are made by simply grinding all the ingredients together in a mixer and frying them. These can be good for a snack, appetizer, or main dish. They are very tender and delicious meatballs.
Yield: 1 Cup
Short Korean Lesson
- UlDa (울다) = Cry (Verb)
- UtDa (웃다) = Laugh (Verb)
Add all the ingredients in a mixer (or blender).
Grind for about 1 minute on high speed, or until all the ingredients stick together well.
Put the ground mixture into a zipper bag.
Cut the edge off (about ½-inch) of the zipper bag with a scissors.
Squeeze the bag to get a ½-inch sized ball. Tip: cut it with a chopstick or dull knife.
You can cut the bag for other sizes.
Fry them for 5 minutes on medium high, or until they become golden brown. Sometimes stir them so the surface will cook evenly.
For adults, you can just scoop the mixture in the pan with a spoon, without the need to use a zipper bag.
I made some of these for my son and made some beef patties for my husband and me. Served them with buttered garlic spaghetti, a green leafy salad, and grapes. It was a very delicious meal. Try it someday.
