Ok these were pretty amazing. Just make them and see for yourself. Thats all I need to say

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of ground beef (1.5-2lbs)
  • 1.5 tbsp of goat cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/5 cup chopped fresh scallions
  • salt to taste (~1/2 tsp)
  • pepper to taste
  • 3 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp parsley (dry spice)
  • 1/2 cup Hoisin sauce marinade
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 3 tbsp of flour

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl combine eggs, ground beef, cilantro, scallions, salt, pepper, garlic, garlic powder, parsley, hoisin sauce marinade, olive oil and mix together
  2. Let the bowl stand for about 30 minutes at room temperature (or leave overnight in the fridge)
  3. Spray pan with PAM or use small amount of olive oil to grease the bottom of the pan. Heat on high heat
  4. Using your hands take small amounts of ground beef mixture and roll into about 1.5-2in balls
  5. Make a small hole in each meatball and place about a 1cm piece of goat cheese inside, cover the cheese  with ground beef making a nice round meatball with cheese inside
  6. Roll each meatball in small amount of flour to help it keep its form
  7. Place each meatball on pan about 1 inch apart, cover the pan and turn heat to medium low. In about 2 min flip the meatballs over and cover again. Cook until there is no pink meat in the center (~about 15 minutes).
  8. You can also bake them instead at 350 degrees for about 20-25 min
  9. Serve with side of your choosing and enjoy!
