Sesame Pork Meatballs

These Sesame Pork Meatballs are bursting with flavor and only takes a few minutes to make {make-ahead friendly recipe as well!} - serve on a busy weeknight for dinner, an appetizer or as a snack with a dipping sauce

These Sesame Pork Meatballs are the quickest, tastiest meatballs to make and perfect for a week night dinner.

The ingredient list for the meatballs might look a bit much, but I assure you all the flavors compliment one another and the end result are spicy, juicy meatballs and you should already have all the ingredients on hand as well.

Prepping takes minutes and you can even do that in advance - mix and roll the meat into meatballs, cover in Sesame Seeds and keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator until you are ready to start dinner.

The Sesame Pork Meatballs can be served for dinner with the extra's below, or you can serve them on a stick with your favorite dipping sauce, which makes it the ideal appetizer or snack whilst watching the game.

I grind my Fennel seeds as I have never seen already ground in the stores, but also I have not really been looking as I have a large container of the whole seeds with my other spices and I think any kind of seed always tastes way better when just grounded, than the bottled types.
