This traditional recipe, from the Shan state of Burma, is for meat balls made with ground beef or pork flavored with minced lemongrass, ginger, and garlic. But it’s easier in a North American kitchen to flatten the balls and cook them as sliders. They cook slowly in a little oil, which gives them a slight crust and succulent interior. Traditionally the meat is chopped by hand, which has a different texture from ground meat, and it’s worth trying. You can also chill the meat and use a food processor to grind it.
