Sticky Pork Balls with Soba Noodle Stirfry


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

  2. Place the pork mince, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, cayenne pepper, salt and egg in a bowl, use your hands to mix until well combined. Roll mix into balls, place into an ovenproof dish. Drizzle with a little olive oil and place in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile in a small bowl, add the soy sauce, mirin, apple cider vinegar and honey and mix well.

  4. Remove the pork from the oven and pour over sauce mixture, placing back in the oven for a further 15 - 20 minutes until it is sticky and cooked. You may need to turn the meatballs occasionally to ensure the sauce coats them well.

  5. While the meatballs are cooking, cook the soba noodles as per packet, drain, rinse and set aside.

  6. In a large fry pan add a drizzle of olive oil and stir fry broccolini, asparagus and edamame beans until just cooked, add in the noodles and meatballs and serve with some fresh coriander. Make sure you scoop up all of the yummy sauce from the bottom of the pan!
