Fantastic flavors! (My only substitute was using turkey instead of pork.) This recipe will go into regular rotation... It is really is outstanding!
Pork meatballs are so underrated! These were wonderful--I added garlic, too, making a more traditional Korean type taste, and instead of fiddling around frying them in oil, cooked them in the oven, about 350 degrees for 15 minutes. I used toasted sesame oil to flavor the meatballs, but don't like to cook with it as the sesame flavor tends to--I used a tsp of regular cooking oil to saute the remaining scallions, ginger, and 1 tsp minced garlic, adding the reserved sesame oil to the finished soup. This really was very delicious!
