Quick Korean Beef Balls Quick Korean Beef Balls
Based on the Korean recipe for Tteokgalbi patties- which is traditionally made with beef short rib- this recipe uses diced beef, minced in the food processor, infused with ginger, garlic, soy and mirin. The mixture is then shaped and cooked in the oven before being brushed with a sweet and sticky soy honey glaze. Garnish with chopped nuts or sesame seeds and spring onions. Serve as a main meal with rice, broccoli or spring greens or serve inside lettuce cups as a starter.
