Meatballs with mushroom gravy

You can do so much with ground pork, but what I love about it is its flexibility because you get to do whatever you want to do with it. Form them into patties, round them, cook them by bits and pieces. An added factor about this ingredient too is that kids tend to love it no matter how you cook it. Say you make your own patties and be experimental with the sauce of picadillo, for sure they would still appreciate it.

So for today's lunch, I made my own version of meatballs. Their verdict? Really flavorful!

What you need

1/2 ground pork
1/4 tablespoon of garlic powder
1/4 tablespoon of ginger powder
1 sachet of magic sarap
Dash of ground black pepper
1 red onion, minced
1/2 cup of japanese bread crumbs
Canola cooking oil for deep frying
Mc cormick mushroom gravy sauce

What you need to do

* On a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except for the bread crumbs.

* Form the mixture into balls but not too big because you may have a hard time cooking it - like cooked on the outside but still raw inside.

* Dredge with panko bread crumbs

* Heat the cooking oil. Deep fry in batches.

* Serve with mushroom gravy on the side. Happy eating!

Tip: Put the meatballs only when the oil is already hot. :) Set the fire from Low to medium. If set to high, chances are the outer layer is already cooked and the inside is still raw.
