  • 700g ground pork (or pork and beef)
  • 100g red onion (1 red onion)
  • 225g can of pineapple with juice
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon chinese five spice
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chilli powder
  • 60g sesame seeds
  • pinch of sea salt
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C. Then chop up the onion to a fine dice. Roughly chop the garlic. Throw everything except the sesame seeds into a food processor and whizz ’round until well mixed. You can also do this by hand, which is probably advisable, it’s just that my dicing skills leave a lot to be desired.
  • Roll the mix into meatballs and roll them into the sesame seeds to coat. Makes about 18-20 large meatballs.
  • Stick on a tray (lined with baking paper to make clean up a breeze) and bake for about 45 minutes.
  • Best served cold!
