These Vietnamese Meatballs are loaded with flavor! I mix ground pork with tons of fresh herbs, grated ginger and garlic. The meatballs are then baked until golden brown then served with an amazing sweet and tangy sauce. I love serving these meatballs over rice to soak up the extra sauce!

How to make Vietnamese Meatballs

These meatballs could not be easier! Simply combine the ground pork, soy sauce, eggs, panko breadcrumbs, herbs, ginger, garlic and spices. Next roll into golf ball sized meatballs. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway.
