Yield: Serves 6 to 8 as an appetizer; 4 as a main course
These meatballs echo the juicy filling in dim sum dumplings. Fattier ground pork will make for more tender meatballs, so ask your butcher to grind it fresh from the shoulder. To make them a meal, serve with stir-fried vegetables and brown rice.

I loved these meatballs and will make them plenty of times. I thought the sauce was a little tedious and going forward will just make up a sauce of my own. And we grind our own pork shoulder and always have shrimp in the freezer so this is super easy to make.
We had these last night and they were excellent - the sauce really makes them!
This should say not to even bother making this with anything but ground pork shoulder (more fat). I used some ground pork I had - from who knows where - and they were dry. if I make them again, I would also add more of the seasonings, as the whole thing was pretty bland.
