To Meatball Base add:
Zest of 1 lime
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
1 tsp ground star anise
2 tbsp fresh lemongrass, minced
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 inch fresh ginger, grated
½ tsp fish sauce
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix gently with hands just until the ingredients are well-distributed. Do not overmix. Form the meatballs by rolling between your palms. Set on a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill for a minimum of 20 minutes, up to an hour.
2. In a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, sear meatballs for 3 minutes. Flip and sear an additional 3 minutes, then transfer skillet to oven. Cook 15 minutes. Remove from oven, cool slightly.
HOW TO SERVE: Wrapped in lettuce leaves with rice noodles, shredded cucumbers and carrots, hoisin sauce, and crushed peanuts.
