This is very versatile dish! I never make it the same way twice.

The meatballs can be made spicy and not the vegetables. Or made with turkey or pork rather than chicken if you wish.

In the stir fry, use any combination of vegetables that you crave.

Give the garnish your own special touch!

I encourage you to be creative and read the entire recipe before shopping to make it!!

Enjoy!

How to Make Thai Meatballs over Spicy Stir Fry & Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. MEATBALLS:
    1. In a large bowl, combine the ground meat, water chestnuts, ginger, pineapple, scallions, soy sauce, and sesame oil.

    2. Use your hands to stir the ground meat mixture until its well-mixed. Now shape the meat mixture into tiny meatballs (1 to 1 1/2 in. diameter).

    3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs and cook, stirring often, until browned on all sides, about 1 min. Cover and cook until meatballs are no longer raw in the center, about 2 minutes longer.

    4. Serve the meatballs over vegetables and rice.
  2. VEGETABLE DIRECTIONS:

    1. Heat vegetable oil and chile oil together in a wok or skillet over medium heat, add garlic and stir until golden brown.

    2. Add broccoli, shallots and water. Saute until tender, about 2 minutes.

    3. Stir in all other ingredients except serrano pepper.

    4. Add soy sauce mixture and toss until all vegetables are brightly colored (just cooked but still crispy).

    5. Quickly stir in serrano pepper and remove from heat.
  3. GARNISH IDEAS:

    Garnish with scallions, sesame seeds, sweet basil, pineapple, spicy peppers, or any combination of these if desired.
