These meatballs are awesome. Vinegary, spicy, and a tad sweet.

Step 1: Spices

2 green onions, chopped

2 tbsp store-bought minced garlic

1 tsp lime juice + 1 strip of dried orange peel (you can subs both with grated peel of 1 big lemon)

all purpose flour for coating

600 g ground meat, lean

Place ground meat in a bowl

Add paste into the meat and mix well

Place flour on a plate, dip your hand on it

Take a sum of meat and shape ball, roll onto the flour. Repeat this step until all meat used up

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a nonstick pan, heat a little of oil (sunflower is the best for this), and fry balls on each side until light browned (3-4 minutes)

Place a baking rack on a baking sheet that already covered with foil, then place balls on the baking rack.

Place baking sheet on the 2nd rack from the lowest and bake for 20 or until cooked.

I'm a wee bit confused about how much coriander/cilantro leaf to use. It calls for 5 bunches, which seems like a lot. Also, I'm not clear on how much "enough" water & vinegar is. Help, please? Thank you.

They sell fresh coriander with its roots, so that would be 5 roots

Depending how much dipping you'd like to make and how sour, then you would know the measurement of the water and vinegar.
