Sesame Pork Meatballs in Chilli Noodle Broth

On 25th August 2015, This was Dinner

If you’d have slapped a takeaway in front of us tonight we would have taken it. Neither of us wanted/could be bothered to make this but we dragged our bums up and got on with it. It was well worth it. It was a fantastic dish, the only minus point, a baking tray that was hard to clean.


  • Finely chop a couple of red chillies
  • Grate some ginger
  • Prepare some chicken stock
  • Cut a head of broccoli into florets
  • Chop some spring onions
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc (fan)
  • Get pork mince, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame seeds, dried egg noodles, five spice powder, sesame oil & seasoning ready


Blanch the broccoli.

Mix the pork with half the chopped chilli, some hoisin, soy sauce and most of the sesame seeds. Roll into small balls and cover and chill whilst you take the dog for a walk for half an hour.

Pop them on a baking tray, sprinkle over the remaining seeds, and cook for about 15 minutes, ensuring they are cooked though.

Heat the oil in a pan and add the ginger and remaining chilli. Cook for a minute then add the five spice powder. Cook for another minute and then add the stock.

Add the noodles to the stock and cook for 4 minutes then add the broccoli and let it cook for a few more minutes. Add the spring onions.

Serve with the meatballs.
